Rice and Tuna fish salad

Most of the recipes I post in this blog are recipes that I cook often at home. Today´s recipe is one of the favorite foods of my children:  “Rice salad”. It´s very easy to make. In a few minutes you can get  a main dish for lunch. This recipe has grain, fish and healthy fat, plenty of minerals and vitamines of the olives. It´s just needed to add some fruit for a complete meal.

1 Cup of long grain rice
1 Can of tuna fish in olive oil
1/2 Cup of sweet corn
1 Can of green olives
Spanish olive oil
2 Spoons of lemon juice
Salt and black pepper

Pour fresh water and a pinch of salt in a casserole, when it boil add the rice. Follow the instructions given in the package. When the rice is cooked drain it with a  colander and cool it with cold water.
Mix all the ingredients with the rice, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the lemon juice and the olive oil.
