Italian Tuna Insalata, Beans e Red Onion

Here are some real simple yet gourmet styled picnic foods, presented by 2010 JBF Award Winner for Best New Restaurant, chef Michael White of Marea in New York City, in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz. The title of this dish is White’s tongue-in-cheek reference to the new Mercedes-Benz E-Cabriolet, a four-seat convertible idyllic for summer driving.
  Canned white beans 4 Cup (64 tbs), drained, rinsed and chilled
  Canned tuna packed in olive oil 9 Ounce, drained, broken into chunks (1 1/2 Six Ounce Cans)
  Red onion 1 Small, very thinly sliced to make about 1 1/2 cups
  Extra virgin olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Ground black pepper To Taste
  Salt To Taste

Place beans in large bowl. Add tuna and onion; drizzle with oil. Toss gently to combine. Season with salt and a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper.
