It’s August and here in the Northeast we have been enduring a stretch of hot and humid weather. While part of me is embracing the warm summer nights, I will admit there is also a part that struggles to think about turning on the oven or stove to make dinner and risk making the kitchen even a degree hotter. On nights like these this White Bean and Tuna Salad makes a great no-cook meal. The beans and tuna provide a great source of protein and the tomatoes could not be better this time of year!
