Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook rice in 3 3/4 cups water. (Bring rice and water to a boil, cover and reduce to minimum for 20 minutes).
  2. Let rice cool completely.
  3. Mix red wine vinigar, olive oil, and dijon in a jar and shake well to emulsify.
  4. Open cans of tuna and drain
  5. Add all ingredients together in a big bowl, season with salt & pepper to taste.
  6. Chill in thr fridge or eat right away.
  7. I always douse some extra vinigar over my own serving.
  8. Eat as a main dish or as a side. Tastes better the next day!

Delicious! To be honest, I must tell what I did differently: I used bulgur wheat instead of basmati rice, and I couldn't help adding a little bit of chopped fresh parsley. Everything else was according to the recipe. This was a very fresh, light and healthful lunch! I LOVED it! Delicious bites of different flavors on every spoonful. Thanks, ieatfoOOd.
