Default Tuna and Cannellini bean salad

I found this from a link at Kalyn's Kitchen. It's great!!

Ingredients:
1 6 ounce can water packed tuna (drained and flaked)
1 19 ounce can cannellini beans (drained and rinsed)
1 small red onion (chopped)
1 clove garlic (chopped)
1 handful chopped parsley
1 handful kalamata olives (pitted and chopped, optional)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste
1 handful salad greens

Directions:
1. Mix the tuna, beans, onion, garlic and parsley in a bowl.
2. Mix the olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper in a bowl.
3. Mix the dressing and the tuna and beans.

MY NOTES:
** I didn't use parsley (didn't have, and didn't want to buy!), nor olives.
** I LOVE this dressing. YUM!!
** The second time I made it, I used celery and red pepper as well. It was soooo delicious, and very filling!!

Hope you enjoy!

The original recipe is at:

(and his picture you can also see zucchini squash too....)

Before anybody asks, cannellini are white kidney beans.

Not quite the same - more like pea beans - but they'd work fine.
Here are pictures.
