White bean and tuna pesto salad

Ha, I told you we’ve been loving salads lately!  I’ve been all about “no cook” these days, and so when our friends organized a potluck picnic in the park yesterday I thought a flavorful salad would be the perfect dish to bring (so did everyone else, we had a lot of salads – just goes to show they are so well suited for this time of year :) ).  It was a picture perfect day – literally; the park was holding La Fête de la Tulipe – the festival of tulips – and we all sat in the grass together amongst over 300 varieties of the most gorgeous tulips all in bloom dancing in the warm afternoon sunshine.  We enjoyed some wine, some stories and laughs, and some delicious food all together.

But I could not get over these gorgeous tulips!! My camera and I went for a little walk through the park, would you like to join me?

How could one not have a great time around friends and such beautiful scenery? (there are lots more tulip photos too!)

This salad is incredibly simple – seriously, it takes 5 minutes to throw together.  So instead we can take our time to be outside enjoying good company and beautiful views of Springtime in full bloom :)
