    Looks nice, but once again it is not the picture of this recipe. The red is tomato diced and it has tuna and cucumber in it as well. Certainly no green beans.

    Also no pitted (or otherwise) black olives. Not 100% sure there's any Cannellini beans, either! And it looks as if there is some either cucumber or zucchini slices in there. Personally, I'd welcome the tuna in there, as I like tuna (even if from the can). I'd rather have no picture with a recipe than one that throws you off track (and possibly false advertising?)......tee-hee....

    The red stuff dotted over the platter could be sun-dried tomatoes, although
    not stated in the ingredients, but it does state good.
