taste of Argentian summer tuna cold casserole
My Argentinian friends made this for me once and it very much hit the spot. It's a great, simple, satisfying lunch. They say it takes like summer to them because everybody eats it on picnics.
*cooked rice (I usually make it with about 2 cups of uncooked rice) *tuna (I put in about a can per 1 cup uncooked rice) *green onions (1-2 per cup rice) *mayonnaise (maybe a Tablespoon per cup rice - until the rice sticks together; sometimes I have to add more the next day - depends on the rice quality I guess) *peas (frozen works great)
Cook the rice; I don't think it matters if it cools down all the way. Mix it all together. I add peas last so I can gauge how much I want in there.
Mix it all up and put it in the fridge. He put it in a bundt pan and chilled all day, which was a nice shape and cut nicely for servings. I put it in a casserole dish.
I especially like it served with fruit, such as grapes or cantaloupe.
