I make a cannellini bean salad for lunch a lot. Or, for those hot days of summer when a light cooler dinner is needed.

Cannellini Bean With Tuna

2 cans cannellini beans drain but don't rinse (these are white kidney beans)
2 cans tuna (drained)
3 finely chopped green onions (or sometimes I use vidalia onions)
1 small tomato (chopped)
3 to 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh parsley (chopped)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon fresh basil (chopped)
1 teaspoon chives (can use dried)

Mix and chill and then serve.

Note: I like to make it ahead a couple of hours and chill it to let the flavors develop. One time someone came to our home around dinner time so I needed to extend this. I added a can of drained garbanzo beans and it was pretty good. I also had to add a bit more EVOOL and lemon juice and a touch more red wind vinegar when I added more beans.


In the summer, I also like to make red kidney bean salad with drained and rinsed kidney beans, mayo, chopped sweet pickles and chopped boiled egg.

I have 2 that I grabbed from a camping website long ago ...

Cold Marinated Shrimp
2 bags, 16 ounces each, cleaned and cooked shrimp (without tails)
2 lemons or limes
Medium sweet onion
1/4 cup each dried parsley flakes, lemon juice, red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive or canola oil
1 teaspoon powdered garlic granules (not garlic salt!)
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
Thaw and drain the shrimp.
Cut lemons or limes in thin wedges.
Peel onion and cut it in crescents.
Put these in a seal-able bag.
In a bowl whisk dried parsley flakes, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, garlic and Italian seasoning.
Pour over shrimp, seal bag and refrigerate overnight
Punch holes in the plastic bag to drain shrimp into a trash bag (not the RV holding tank).
Serves 6 as a meal, 8 to 10 as an appetizer.

Chilly Dilly Sauce
2 cups sour cream (16 oz. carton)
1 tablespoon dried chives
1 tablespoon dried dill weed
1/4 cup white vinegar*
* Can be white balsamic, champagne or white wine vinegar or distilled white vinegar.
* Don't use a dark vinegar, which would tint the sauce.
Small sweet onion, finely chopped
Medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and finely chopped (I press mine to get excess water out)
Salt, white pepper to taste
Stir together sour cream, chives, dill weed and vinegar.
Fold in onion and cucumber.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Chill for a couple of hours.
Serve it on everything from grilled meats to baked potatoes, or serve it as a dip for cut-up vegetables.

This sounds good - any idea if it would work in a crockpot? I don't use my oven in the summer.

Or does the stuffing/butter get crunchy, making it a key taste to the dish?

Good question. Would like to know the answer to this too. Recipe sounds good.

One of my current favorite recipes is Wine Slush because it's so refreshing.

Wine Slush Recipe
 
Pour 750ml of your preferred wine into a freezer container, add 1/2 bottle of water. Per canister/package directions, add enough lemonade powder or citrus base to make 2 quarts.

You can play around with varieties....just be sure to use the equivalent of 2 quart citrus base. Do not use sugar free citrus base (Koolaid/frozen lemonade or orange juice). Mix ingredients well to ensure all ingredients have dissolved.

Place in freezer overnight. Prior to serving, allow to sit at room temp for 10-15 minutes. Scoop slush into glass and top off with lemon-lime soda. Enjoy.

Never tried it in the crockpot as I make this dish too with a little twist of my own. IMO I don't think it would turn out as good.
