  1. Combine the rice and water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until rice is tender and the water has been absorbed.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss together the romainee lettuce, carrot, and tuna. Pour the olive oil and vinegar over this mixture, and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. When the rice is done, cool for about 5 minutes, then toss with the salad. The warm rice will wilt the romaine lettuce slightly. Taste and adjust the amounts of vinegar and oil or salt and pepper if desired. Serve immediately. This does not keep well.

Yum! My neighbors came over for lunch adn I seerved this dish. It was definitely a hit. One asked for the recipe because her husband loved the leftovers so much.

I halved the rice, vinegar and oil, kept the other amounts the same, and I used whole-grain brown rice. I highly recommend using brown rice, even if you keep the other amounts the same. Very tas...

This was delicious! It's addictive--I couldn't stop eating it. I was afraid the tuna or vinegar would be overpowering, but the unusual mix of flavors was perfect. My toddlers didn't care for it,...

Wow, these ingredients really work together. And what a fabulous way to make something easy, inexpensive, and healthy! The only comment I have is that, as written, I think the recipe is too heav...

A great meal that could be done in short time

I was intrigued by this recipe since it didn't contain a bucket of mayonaise like most other tuna salads. OH MY GOODNESS! So quick and easy to make, and what a *fabulous* combination of flavor...
