very French Rice Salad

Here is a nice and simple idea for lunch.
  • 1 cup (200 grams) long grain rice
  • 2 hard boiled eggs (10 minutes)
  • 2 ripe tomatoes
  • 3 scallions
  • 1 can of tuna in water
  • 1 small can of sweet corn
  • 1 handful of black olives
  • 3 or 4 tablespoons of vinaigrette salad dressing
  1. Boil the rice in a lot of salted water until cooked (15-20 minutes). Drain the excess water and let the rice cool down (you can rinse it with cold water to go faster).
  2. Thinly slice the scallions.
  3. Slice the tomatoes and the eggs.
  4. With a fork, cut the tuna in small chunks after draining all the water from the can.
  5. Drain the olives and the corn.
  6. Add all the ingredients and the dressing to the rice and toss.
  7. Eat cold.
There are many variants to this refreshing salad. You could replace the tuna by cocktail shrimps, crab meat or cubed chicken breast or use no meat at all. You could add other veggies, like green and red bell peppers, cucumbers, avocado... You could add fresh herbs, like parsley or tarragon... Be creative!
