If you like tuna but would prefer to skip the mayonnaise in traditional American tuna salad, take a tip from the Italians and make a salad of tuna and white beans.

Instead of mayonnaise, this salad is dressed with a light lemony vinaigrette. It can be served on a bed of greens or by itself.

The salad also can be dressed up with capers, garlic, olives and other ingredients.
