Lemony Tuna and Cannellini Dip

I recently had some girlfriends over for a little get together of ‘shits and giggles’!

Don’t you just love it when you have an impromptu gathering of a few girlfriends, where you have a few nibbles to snack on, a bottle of bubbles and lots of chatter and laughs?

Well, as I said, it was impromptu and I had a short time frame to whip something on a platter for us to nibble on. I had some leftover sushi from lunch, chopped up some veggie sticks, some rice crackers and always a jar of olives in the fridge.

I quickly looked in the cupboard, saw a time of tuna, a tin of cannellini beans and thought “I know, some lemony tuna and cannellini dip!”.

This dip takes moments to whip up and uses ingredients you usually have in your pantry/fridge. Not only is it great for a dip to serve on a platter but you can also serve it as a sandwich/wrap filling on the side of a salad for a quick lunch to take to work.
