“From: "Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way" by Lorna Sass. "Chewy, easy-to-love short-grain brown rice makes an appealing grain base for a salad containing many of the elements of a traditional salade nicoise. The tuna and its soaking oil become a major part of the dressing, coating each grain with the savor of the sea." *Time does not include time to cook rice and green beans.”
