Appetizer, lunch, Side Dish
European, Italian, malta, Mediterranean
ribe or arborio
tuna in olive oil
green and black olives
juice of half a lemon
Cook the rice according to instructions. I cooked my ribe rice in a large pot of boiling water for about 10-12 minutes.
Once cooked, drain the rice and spread it over a baking dish in a thin layer so that it cools quickly.
While the rice is cooling, prepare all the other ingredients as needed. Reserve about 2 tablespoons of the olive oil that was in the tuna can.
In a small bowl combine together the reserved olive oil, lemon, dried mint, dried dill, salt and pepper.
Mix the rice together with the chopped ingredients with the olive oil mixture.
Serve immediately or cold.
optional: mozzarella, mussels, cucumber, kidney beans, white beans, other pickled veg
