"I love this super easy refreshing summer side dish.
You can use canned cannellini beans (ideally you would slow cook some fresh white beans with a bay leave or two).
Caramelize some thinly sliced red onions (Ideally you would use "cipolle rosse di Tropea", red onions from Sicily) in olive oil then add some sugar. Season the beans with the caramelized onions, a dash of red wine vinegar, salt, pepper and olive oil. Finish with chopped fresh mint.
If you would want to make this a more substantial dish, you could add some tuna fish."
Sounds good to me!
