      Instructions
      1. In a medium size bowl stir together mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, green onions, capers, celery, dill, parsley, salt and pepper. Gently stir in tuna and white beans.
      2. Spread out 2-3 butter leaf lettuce leaves overlapping each leaf to create a solid surface for the salad. Mound an approximate 1/3 cup of tuna and bean salad onto the center of the lettuce bed. Wrap lettuce around salad, tucking in the ends as you roll, much like a cabbage roll. Cut in half and serve immediately.
      Recipe Notes

      Use any white bean that you like here as well as your favourite sprouts or pea shoots for crunch.

      Recipe yields a generous 2 cups of tuna and bean salad.
