Tuna Love

You know those people that go to Costco and stock up on canned tuna in case of a natural disaster.  Well I'm the person that buys ridiculous amounts of tuna and eats it all, disaster or not.  I usually have it for lunch, never really at dinner.  But tonight I was just looking for a light simple supper, oh and I forgot to defrost another type of protein, so time to raid the pantry.  This lack of being organized on my part, actually yielded a fantastic dinner.  Beans, tuna, avocado.  It's a trifecta.

1 can tuna, drained and flaked
1 19oz can white beans, drained and rinsed
1 avocado, chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp dried parsley, plus more for garnish
salt & pepper to taste
