This simple tuna salad is tossed with avocado, cucumber, feta, red onions, herbs and a zippy lemon-sumac dressing and served over rice. See notes above for potential ingredient add-ins or substitutes.



Tuna Avocado Rice Bowl Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked brown rice
  • 3 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 (5-ounce) cans tuna packed in oil, drained
  • 2 medium avocados, diced
  • half of an English cucumber, diced
  • half of a small red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill, loosely packed

Sumac Dressing Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon each: fine sea salt, freshly-ground black pepper, ground cumin, ground sumac


  1. Cook the brown rice. Cook the brown rice however you prefer, either on the stovetop, in the Instant Pot or in a rice cooker (per appliance instructions).
  2. Make the dressing. Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl (or shake together in a sealed jar) until emulsified.
  3. Make the tuna salad. Add the feta, drained tuna, avocado, cucumber, red onion and dill to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle evenly with the dressing, then toss gently until evenly combined.
  4. Serve. Serve immediately over brown rice, garnished with extra feta, dill, ground sumac and black pepper if desired.
