This UK recipe relies upon convenient canned and jarred foods to make a colorful, no-fuss, main-course salad with plenty of Mediterranean flavors. Another plus: It’s ready in 20 minutes. Unlike many traditional American tuna salads, this version omits the mayonnaise for a lighter, fresher flavor. Use white kidney beans, also known as cannellini beans, which are a well-loved staple in Mediterranean cuisine. The mix of fresh vegetables—artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, cucumbers, and cherry tomatoes—provide a tasty mix of flavors and textures as well as a good dose of visual appeal. Use grape or chopped Roma tomatoes in place of the cherry tomatoes, if you like.
