  1. On a serving platter, place tuna in center. Arrange green beans, potatoes, pinto beans, tomatoes, black olives, and eggs around tuna. Serve with vinaigrette dressing. (See below.)
Dress it Up: To make a vinaigrette dressing: in a bowl or jar, combine 1/4 cup olive oil, 2 tablespoons white vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper; whisk or shake until well blended.

Better-for-You Tip: When it comes to summer salads, don’t forget that canned beans, tuna, veggies, and hard boiled eggs are always a welcome addition. They add fiber, protein, and as you can see, lots of color to any table. And by making our own homemade dressing, eyou get not only a fresh taste, but a dressing that is better-for-you!
