Splendid Seafood: Tuscan Tuna Plate

Hello Everyone! Wow, this day flew by SO fast, I want to squeeze in a meal that I don't have to do a lot of cooking to, but still be full and healthy! So what can I make? Well, a Tuscan Tuna Plate of course!! Its the perfect ending to a hectic day!

Tuscan Tuna Plate
grocery list:
8 oz fresh green beans, stem ends trimmed
1⁄3 cup bottled olive oil and vinegar dressing (or Italian)
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 can cannellini beans, rinsed
3 cups baby arugula (from a 5-oz bag) {spinach works if you can't find arugula}
2 cans solid white tuna in oil (or water), drained and flaked ( I also like the kind in the pouches now!)
3 large eggs, hard-cooked, cut in wedges
1⁄2 cup sliced red radishes
1⁄3 cup pitted kalamata olives
Freshly ground pepper to taste

How to make it:
1. Half-fill a large skillet with lightly salted water; bring to a boil. Add green beans and cook about 4 minutes until crisp-tender. Drain; rinse under running cold water.

2. In a clear measuring cup, stir dressing and mustard with a fork to blend. Put 1 Tbsp into a medium bowl. Add cannellini beans; toss to coat.

3. Line a large platter with arugula. Spoon on cannellini beans. Put green beans in same bowl; add 1 Tbsp dressing and toss to coat. Add green beans to platter.

4. Add tuna, eggs, radishes and olives to platter. Grind pepper over top. Drizzle with remaining dressing, or serve alongside.

**Great with crusty Italian bread.
