Picture of Tuna Bread Salad Recipe
Another way to use leftover bread is to make a bread salad.  This bread salad is a One Pot Wonder.  You don’t need anything more than something to wash it down with.  It’s surprisingly refreshing and filling and the whole family will enjoy.  It’s also a different way to use that can of tuna in your pantry.  All of these ingredients are easy to find and won’t break the bank!
What you will need:
1 (14oz) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 shallot, chopped
1 pint grape tomatoes
2 T fresh basil, chopped
½ baguette, cubed
What you probably have at home:
1 (12 oz) can light tuna, packed in water, drained
¼ cup kalamata olives, pitted and halved
3 T olive oil
1 T red wine vinegar
2 tsp spicy mustard
Bread knife
Large bowl
Small bowl
1)      Mix tuna, olives, beans, shallot, and tomatoes in large bowl.
2)      In small bowl, combine vinegar, oil and mustard.  Whisk and reserve.
3)      Just before serving, fold bread into tuna mixture.  Drizzle with dressing, lightly mixing all ingredients together.  Sprinkle chopped basil over top.
4)      Serve.
Thank you Melissa d’Arabian for another tasty dish!
Note: Don’t forget to recycle! It’s also better to wash those dishes in the dishwasher than clean them in the sink.  You waste less water.
