Nicoise Salad with Rice



  • 70g green beans, halved lengthways

  • ¼ cup long grain rice (raw)

  • 1 cup butter lettuce, leaves shredded

  • 6 cherry tomatoes

  • 2 tablespoons black/green pitted olives, halved

  • 1 anchovy fillet (marinated in oil and salt only), drained and chopped

  • 95g can tuna in oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard (garlic free)

  • 3 teaspoons rice wine vinegar

  • 1 hard-boiled egg, halved


  1. Place rice and cold water in a medium saucepan. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low, then cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes until small craters form in surface of the rice. Drain rice and rinse well.

  2. Place beans in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Stand for 1 minute or until bright green and just tender. Drain, refresh under cold water, then drain again.

  3. Place beans, lettuce, tomato, olives, anchovy, tuna (undrained), mustard and vinegar in a large bowl. Add rice and season with salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine. Top with a hard-boiled egg and serve.
