This is a variation to a Nicoise salad which is easy to make and healthy.

Nicoise Salad originated in France, and it is sometimes made with potatoes as well as anchovies.

In this recipe I have added a nutty flavour by using red rice

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 2 - 3 servings as a main

Ingredients
cup red rice, rinsed
125g green beans, trimmed
1 can 180g tuna, drained
2 spring onions, thinly sliced
125g small roma tomatoes
Lebanese cucumber, chopped
cup kalamata olives
Handful of chopped parsley to taste
2 boiled eggs

FOR THE DRESSING
Less than cup olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp capers
tsp sugar
Bit of garlic

Method
Cook the red rice following packet instruction. I used the absorption method.
Drain thoroughly.
Cook the beans in a bit of salted water for only 1 - 2 minutes, they should still be crisp.
Dry them with paper towel.
In a large bowl, put the tomatoes, cucumbers and sliced spring onions and mix slightly.

For the dressing, put all ingredients into a jar, add salt & pepper, and shake. Pour over the salad just before serving.
I added a few pretzels to make the dish look nicer as well as parsley on the side.

Lastly cut the eggs in quarter and put on top of each plate.
