Ingredients

Instructions

  1. As seen on: Giada In Italy, Episode 6. Sisters and Cousins.
  2. To a large bowl add the capers, lemon juice and Dijon mustard. Whisk together. While whisking, drizzle in the olive oil in a steady stream. Whisk in 1/4 teaspoon salt. To the dressing add the beans and mash gently with a spoon. Add the tuna, flaking it with a fork into bite sized pieces as you add it to the bowl. Toss lightly to coat. Add the endive, treviso, arugula, shaved fennel, parsley leaves and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt on top of the tuna mixture. Using your hands, toss the salad together bringing the dressing up from the bottom of the bowl until everything is coated evenly.

    Giada, your recipes never cease to amaze! I don’t like mayonnaise so this is another delicious, creative way to make tuna for me. Plus tons of good for you leafy vegetables.
