Tuna Rice Salad

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Robin Batterson

This is a Tuna Rice Salad that I like on a bed of shredded lettuce or lettuce leaves for a warm summer lunch or dinner. I have also used it for a side dish at cookouts. Great for the non-meat eaters. You can add additional chopped veggies in if you want. Hope you enjoy.

I like tuna and I like the ingredients used in the recipe. I couldn't get past the taste of the garbanso beans. They taste meally to me. I think it is my personal taste. I had to add some other vegies to the salad.
