  • 1 celery heart with leaves
  • ¼ cup red onion
  • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  1. Prepare you ingredients: drain the tuna, drain and rinse the beans, peel and grate the carrot, chop the celery heart, and dice the red onion. In a large bowl, whisk the mustard, red onion, vinegar, and oil. Toss tuna, beans, carrot, and celery with the dressing. Season with ¼ teaspoon black pepper.
  2. Recipe Tips: Once you have used the large stalks of celery, you will find the celery heart. It is the pale green, center of the bunch of celery that is often thrown away, but is great for salads. You can use any type of white bean for this salad.
