Albacore Tuna, Bean & Kale Salad

Follow the proportions, but liberate yourself with the ingredients! If you don’t have a specific ingredient listed, try one of the substitutions. The Miso-Maple Dressing is divine, but any dressing you have on hand or like to prepare will work wonderfully with this recipe.




  • 1/3 cup yellow onion, very thinly sliced (sub with red onion)
  • 1 cup carrot, shredded
  • 1/3 cup cucumber pickles, diced (sub with any pickles)
  • 1 bunch kale, leaves stripped and shredded (sub other hearty winter greens)
  • 1/2 cup raisins (sub with black currants)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, drained (sub with black or white beans)
  • 1 can Alaska Gold Albacore Canned Tuna, broken up

Miso-Maple Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice vinegar (sub with lemon juice)
  • 2 tablespoons, white miso
  • 1 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon maple syrup (sub with honey)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Toss the salad ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. To make the Miso-Maple Dressing, combine ingredients in a jar and shake vigorously until blended together.
  3. Add the desired amount of dressing to the salad and toss thoroughly. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes before serving. Or, store in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight before serving. The longer the salad marinates, the better!
