Tuna Salad with Beans and Apple

Cooking time: 20 minutes


  • 600 g (5 cans/~21 ounce) canned tuna
  • 1 (~130 g) yellow onion
  • 2 (~350 g) green apples
  • 220 g (1 can/8 ounce) red beans
  • 150 – 200 g (~3/4 cup) mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Tbsp salt
  • Ground black pepper to taste


  1. Open each can of tuna, drain the juice and place the tuna in a large bowl. Grind the tuna slices well with a fork.
  2. Cut the onion into very small squares and pour boiling water over it. Leave on for 5 – 7 minutes. After that, rinse the onions under cold water until they cool completely, leave the onions on a sieve so that all the water is in the insole. Squeeze the onion if necessary.
  3. Cut green apples into small squares, having previously peeled and seeds removed.
  4. Open a can of red beans, drain the liquid (you can rinse the beans).
