Red Rice Salad With Tuna Beans Tomato And Olives

Posted 2014-10-21 by finyfollow


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 [link http://reviewclue.com.au/red-rice-by-sunrice/ red rice]

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

Ingredients
¼ cup red rice, rinsed
125g green beans, trimmed
1 can 180g tuna, drained
2 spring onions, thinly sliced
125g small roma tomatoes
¾ Lebanese cucumber, chopped
¼ cup kalamata olives
Handful of chopped parsley to taste
2 boiled eggs

FOR THE DRESSING
Less than ¼ cup olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp capers
½ 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.



  • Then add the beans, parsley and olives.



  • Mix it thoroughly, add the flaked, drained tuna and mix again.



  • 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.
