Classic tuna rice salad get’s more flavour from fennel and lemon. Easy salad is a crowd pleaser and a great weeknight dish as well.

I’m so sorry, cooking this salad will take you more than 30 minutes, which might be more than you have on a weeknight. But look at the bright side, you’ll have more than 10 minutes to do absolutely nothing while the rice boils! And that’s intriguing, isn’t it? 😉
I should have a tag and a logo for these weeknight relaxation dishes, don’t you think?
I use only brown rice (usually) but you can totally change the rice to white, basmati, what ever you prefer. Changing to a whiter rice will significantly cut the cooking time.
