Tuna and White Bean Salad
20 asparagus spears
1 tablespoon capers, drained
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 (15-ounce) can organic white beans, rinsed and drained
4 cups torn butter lettuce (about 1 head)
2 (5-ounce) cans solid white tuna packed in olive oil, drained and broken into chunks
Snap off tough ends of asparagus spears. Steam asparagus, covered, for 3 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water; drain.
Combine capers and the next 7 ingredients (through pepper) in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk.
Place 1/4 cup juice mixture, cherry tomatoes, and beans in a small bowl; toss gently to combine.
Place 1 cup lettuce on each of 4 plates, and top each serving with 5 asparagus spears. Spoon about 1/2 cup white bean mixture over each serving, and divide tuna evenly among servings. Drizzle each salad with about 1 tablespoon remaining juice mixture.
