Tuna, Feta, Mixed Bean and Brown Rice Salad with a Creamy Garlic and Basil Dressing

Happy Pancake Day you’alll, and let’s celebrate it with a tuna rice salad!!! In my defence we had pancakes 2 weeks ago, specifically for the reason that I could blog the recipe before pancake day, however my camera’s memory card was sat in my computer instead of my camera so the pictures were non-existent; which is a shame because the pancakes were so damn good! – Ooohhhhh well, I’ll just have to make pancakes again (what a terrible shame that is)! So, keep this delicious tuna salad recipe for a day that you aren’t stuffing your face with pancakes, and it you’re still looking some delicious, out of the ordinary pancake inspiration, then just check out my post from previous years.
