Tuna & Rice Salad

This is one of my all time favorite lunches. It is adapted from this recipe on all recipes, that states it came from someone's croatian roommate.

Tuna and Rice Salad

1/2 cup cooked brown rice
chopped romaine lettuce
1 pkg tuna fish flaked
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 small shallot grated
  • 1 clove garlic grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste
1 handful olives

make the salad right after you cook the rice while it's still warm
toss the rice and lettuce, crumble the tuna and add the olives

combine the olive oil, vinegar, shallot, garlic, mustard, salt and pepper in a screw top container and shake until emulsified.

dress the salad with dressing and enjoy!
