1 1/2 cups shelled beans = about 1 pound beans in their pods.
If it’s hot and you don’t want to cook, use canned beans. Drain a can of cannelini or pinto beans and rinse them well. Mix them together with the tuna and herbs in step 3.
Many beans are toxic to some degree when raw, and some, like kidney beans, are very poisonous indeed. 10 minutes of cooking makes them all safe, so don’t take the risk, cook them.
When you buy canned tuna, always try to buy sustainably fished, trolled, or pole and line caught fish. Look for US caught Albacore and Tongol tunas. Wild Planet tuna is a good brand to buy.
