delicious monday: chickpea salad with tuna


on sunday mornings, we drink a lot of coffee, eat waffles (lately eggs because we ran out of waffle mix), and plan meals for for the week. we pick three or four lunches and three dinners.

for lunch, we usually make a variety of salads. they’re easy to prepare in the evenings or mornings. one of our favorite salads is a super simple, super sensible chickpea salad.

  • 1 vacuum-pack of white tuna
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 1 can of cannellini beans

  • lemon juice
  • balsamic vinegar
  • kosher salt and pepper for seasoning


  • substitute the canned tuna with seared tuna steaks.

  • serve on top of crostini as an appetizer.
