Cooking Light JUNE 2010

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 1/4 cups)
  • Total:30 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup thinly vertically sliced red onion
  • 2 (6-ounce) cans Italian tuna packed in olive oil, drained and broken into chunks
  • 1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (5-ounce) package fresh baby arugula
  • 2 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, shaved

Preparation

1. Whisk together first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Add tomatoes and next 4 ingredients (through arugula); toss. Top with cheese.

Wine note: Terredora Di Paola Falanghina 2008 ($16) is a crisp and citrusy white with acidity to cut the flavorful oil in this salad. Light body and mineral nuance pair well with tuna, while a slightly peppery finish matches the herbaceous arugula. -Jeffery Lindenmuth
