When it comes to choosing marijuana recipes, most people don’t typically think of fare such as this — tuna and white beans mixed into a healthy Mediterranean inspired salad. But they should. I find the unwanted herbal flavor of cannabis blend in far easier with flavorful savory fare like this than it does with sweets. Canned tuna fish pairs with delicate white beans in this fiber-rich, tuna salad that’s perfect for picnics as it doesn’t contain any mayonnaise. Serve plated for an entrée salad, or alternately stuff into a pita pocket or crusty roll for a Tuscan Tuna sandwich. Give it a try. This recipe makes makes a quick, easy, and healthy way to use Marijuana Oil (I like to use Marijuana Olive Oil).
