Who doesn’t love a great tasting, quick & easy weeknight meal?! I don’t think anyone loves them more than us parents that are preparing them! After a long day at work and school, the last thing you want to worry about is what’s for dinner. Wouldn’t it be nice to end your day relaxed with family instead of feeling like you have to rush around to get something on the table? This delicious, make ahead chilled Tuna, Veggie & Wild Rice Salad is the perfect simple dinner any night of the week & the leftovers are great for lunch the next day too! Yum!
I’m a huge fan of Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna, With it’s firm texture, light color and fresh taste, Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore is the perfect ingredient to deliciously enhance almost any recipe, while adding a variety of nutrients (including lean protein, healthy fat and important vitamins and minerals. *See their website for full nutritional facts) to your family’s diet. Seeing is believing and Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna is quality you can see from the moment you open the can.
Meaty pieces of albacore tuna are tossed with seasoned wild rice, green onions, shredded carrots, colorful red and yellow peppers, tiny broccoli florets and extra virgin olive oil in this tasty salad recipe. What makes this salad so great is the convenience of preparing it ahead of time!
If you have a few extra minutes on the weekend, you can easily have this ready to go for the upcoming week. Start by preparing your wild rice according to the package’s instructions. Cool the rice completely and store it in the refrigerator Drain the water out of your can of albacore and add the tuna to a large glass serving bowl (preferably with a lid for easy storage later) along with the other fresh ingredients.
Toss everything together well, cover, and place the salad into the refrigerator to chill and let the flavors mingle for at least 30 minutes. You can of course serve this salad room temperature but we love it chilled. Either way, it’s delicious! This salad is wonderful served in romaine lettuce leaves, by itself or along with some with steamed veggies on the side. Enjoy!
