    2. Mix prosciutto cotto, cheese, button mushrooms, sweetcorn, green olives, black olives, pickle, artichoke hearts, olive oil, thyme and oregano together in a large bowl. Stir in cooled rice mixture. Fold tuna into the salad.
    3. Divide salad among 4 serving plates; garnish with hard-boiled eggs. Chill before serving, at least 30 minutes.
