Tuna, Anchovy, Sun Dried Tomato and Cannellini Beans

I've tried a few combinations of beans and tuna salad and this one is really lovely, it looks like it should be really oily but it's not at all. The dressing is actually really lovely and light.

Tuna, Anchovy, Sun Dried Tomato and Cannellini Beans
(from Grains - Molly Brown)
(Serves 4)

1 250g tin tuna in spring water
2 400g tins cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
75g sun dried tomatoes
16 anchovies, chopped
1 red onion, finely sliced
40 black olives, pitted and halved
3 tbsp parsley, chopped
salt and pepper
180ml olive oil
juice 1 lemon
2 tsp Dijon mustard

Put the tuna, beans, tomatoes, anchovies, onion, olives and parsley into a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

Mix together the olive oil, lemon juice and mustard in a small bowl. 

Pour the dressing over the bean and tuna mixture, being careful not to squash the beans. Season if necessary.
