Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Start to finish: 30 minutes Serves: 5


For the salad:

1 cup long grain white rice

½ teaspoon salt

12 ounces fresh green beans, ends trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 3 cups)

1 cup thinly sliced celery

1 cup diced red bell pepper (1 small)

1 cup diced red onion (1 small)

½ cup chopped fresh basil

Two 6-ounce cans water-packed chunk light tuna, drained, flaked


In a small bowl, whisk dressing ingredients, then set aside.

Cook rice with salt according to package directions, then spread on a large baking sheet to cool. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add green beans and cook until tender-crisp, about five minutes. Drain and rinse under cold running water. Transfer to a large serving bowl. Add the celery, bell pepper, onion, basil, cooled rice and dressing, then toss to combine. Add the tuna and serve.
