On a warm summer night, you will enjoy eating this salad when it is well chilled. You can serve it alone as a side dish or with canned or grilled tuna — really different and delicious!

2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
1 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 15-ounce can of white cannellini beans (rinsed and drained)
1 cup of sliced or chopped celery
1/2 of a red onion, chopped
1/2 cup of olives, chopped (you can use black, green, or nicoise olives)
1 can of tuna, drained and flaked

4 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced (you may use 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder)
1/2 teaspoon of both salt and pepper

Place dressing in a jar and shake well. Pour over salad ingredients. Chill well and serve!
