  • 2 cups of cooked long grain basmati rice, cold
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lemon juice and zest
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup corn, canned or thawed
  • 1 cup peas, canned or thawed
  • 2 cans tuna, drained
  • 6 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 4 tbsp yogurt
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Break apart any clumps of the rice, then add in green onions, red bell pepper, corn, and peas.
  • Add the drained flaked tuna to the mix. I like to break apart the tuna with a fork before dumping it in to make sure its not clumpy.
  • Seperately, mix together the lemon juice and zest, olive oil, mayonnaise, yogurt, milk and salt and pepper to form your dressing.
