Posted 04/21/2015 | By HealthCorps

This protein-packed salad offers two non-meat sources of protein. It’s a perfect lunch or dinner salad, and serves 4.


  • 7 cups of spinach
  • 2 five ounce cans of tuna, packed in its own juices, drained
  • 1 fifteen ounce can of cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 5 strips of marinated red peppers, drained well and chopped
  •  2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh chopped rosemary
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


  • Whisk together the wet ingredients with the spices and seasonings, and set aside.
  • Combine the spinach, beans, tuna and peppers and toss gently.
  • Add the dressing just before serving and toss lightly again.

Note: You can top this salad with a light sprinkle of cheese shavings, or with a handful of chopped walnuts.
