The beauty of this recipe is that most of the ingredients are shelf-stable and those that are not can be substituted or left out entirely, depending on availability.

Tips and substitutions

Canned vs. Cooked beans

This is entirely up to you. If you’re sensitive to legumes, I would recommend soaking dried beans overnight, cooking them for 45 minutes (or until desired softness) in fresh water and letting them cool. Otherwise, canned will work just fine.

Marinated Artichoke Hearts

Marinated artichoke hearts add a nice tangy flavor to this white bean tuna salad, but if you can’t find marinated, canned will work just as well. Or even fresh if you want to go the extra length.

Fresh dill vs. dried

Fresh is always best for this salad but again, if you can’t find any at your local market or ran out of fresh, using a little dried dill will add a nice flavor without overpowering.

Rice wine vinegar

If you don’t have rice wine vinegar, you can substitute with white vinegar. Rice wine vinegar is milder and a little sweeter than white vinegar so add just slightly less than 1 tsp.

Lemon

Using fresh lemon is great, but you can easily substitute bottled lemon juice.

Shallot

No shallot, no problem. You can use either red onion or sweet onion to give you that nice bite.
