This recipe was developed for Zojirushi rice cooker models listed here. Adjustments may be necessary when using other models.


Measure rice accurately using the measuring cup that came with your rice cooker. Rinse rise quickly once, drain and place in the inner cooking pan.


Add water to the corresponding water level for “BROWN RICE.” Then add salt and stir well with rice using the rice spatula. Cook the rice using the “BROWN" setting.


In a large bowl, place all dressing ingredients and combine.


Cook beans in boiling salted (not included in the ingredients list) water for 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain beans and immediately plunge them into cold water. Cut in 1/4 length.


When rice is cooked, spread out onto a large plate and set aside. When the rice cool to the touch, add to the bowl with dressing from step 3, add green onions, cucumber and toss gently.


Place rice salad to serving plates. Arrange with tuna, olives, eggs and cherry tomatoes. Serve immediately.
