  1. In a small jar or bowl, combine the dressing ingredients, whisk together and set aside.
  2. Bring a small pot of water to a boil, and fill a seperate bowl with ice cold water. Once the water in the pot is boiling, add the green beans and cook for 2-3 minutes until bright green in colour. Once cooked, remove them from the boiling water and submerge them immediately in cold water.
  3. While the green beans are cooling, prepare the rest of the salad. In one large bowl or two seperate bowls, combine arugula, radicchio, red onion and cherry tomatoes.
  4. Once beans have cooled, pat them dry and add them to the salad with tuna and white beans. Cover salad with dressing and toss gently to combine.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
