I love it! However, dried cranberries aren't exactly cheap and I usually do not have them on hand. I have tried it with raisins, which are cheaper. However, I generally just forget about the raisins/cranberries completely. I do like the apple in there, perhaps with some celery or cucumber.
I love to buy tuna on sale. Sometimes I can get it for 79 cents (or even less) for a 6 - 6 1/2 oz. can. Then I buy a couple dozen cans at once. It certainly keeps!
I have tried combining it with all kinds of things: a cuke kidney beans mushrooms an apple (not all at once!)
I also generally, (not always, not right now) keep a small jar of mayo in the fridge at work, so if I'm in a hurry, I can just grab a can of tuna and an apple or whatever in the morning, and make the salad at work.
Sometimes I use the whole can for one meal. Sometimes I split it in half and save the rest for another day.
I don't know, I suspect that food blogger over at fannetasticfood is getting paid for product placement, but still, rice is rice. I didn't use Uncle Ben's, but I made a main meal salad based upon her ideas. It was filling, and I ate less rice than I would have had I just eaten leftover fried rice!
Supper: Romain with leftover chicken fried rice tomato sauce 1 ounce of cheese.
I liked it! Seemed a strange combination, but the blog sold me.
