Mediterranean Pasta Salad

I made this pasta salad for dinner with ingredients on hand in the kitchen and garden. It was good enough to make again.

2 cups dried pasta cooked according to package directions
2 tins tuna, drained and flaked
1-1/2 cup black beans
5 large stuffed olives, sliced
2 tomatoes, diced
3 scallions, sliced
5 leaves fresh basil, ribboned

Dressing: 2 tbsp olive oil
                2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
                fresh ground pepper

Put salad ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk dressing with a fork and pour over salad.
Other vegetables such as sliced fresh or roasted peppers, celery, carrot, etc could also be used.
