Southpark's White Bean and Tuna Salad

2 cups dried canellini beans or small white beans, covered with water and soaked overnight

1 small red onion, finely diced

2 stalks celery, finely diced

1 bunch Italian (flat-leaf) parsley, stems removed, coarsely chopped

2 7-ounce cans bonito tuna or two 6-ounce cans albacore tuna, packed in oil, drained

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

5 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Salt to taste

Fresh ground black pepper to taste

Drain the soaked beans, place in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook at a simmer until tender, 40 minutes to 1 hour. Salt only at the end of cooking or the skins will crack.

Pour the beans and cooking liquid into a shallow pan and refrigerate.

After they're cooled, drain the beans and put them into a large bowl. Add the onion, celery and parsley.

Break the tuna into pieces. Add tuna, oil and vinegar. Toss well, add salt and pepper to taste. Serve at room temperature.
