DIRECTIONS

  • Cook rice according to package directions; after, set aside to cool.
  • While rice cools, steam the green beans until tender-crisp; then rinse under cold, running water.
  • Transfer the green beans to a large serving bowl and add the celery, bell pepper, onion and basil.
  • Add the rice and dressing (the dressing is comprised of the last 4 ingredients listed).
  • Toss to combine, then add tuna.
  • Toss to combine and eat immediately or cover and refrigerate until serving time. (I prefer to refrigerate for a few hours.).
  • (Additional notes: you can also use frozen green beans in lieu of fresh for the recipe if necessary, but please use FRESH basil! It makes all the difference to not be using a dried spice. Also, I love to serve these as tacos/burritos on whole wheat tortillas, but you can serve them however you want!).
