Asian Grilled Tuna Salad

I love meal salads for dinner, because they are so easy to throw together and you have a complete and healthy meal ready in no time. I generally use store purchased dressing so it makes it even easier. If you want to make this even easier for yourself, get the bagged lettuce (you will need two bags) and store purchased won ton strips and you will have a meal in no time! Serves 4.

Ingredients

Tuna
1 lb. of fresh sushi grade tuna cut into rectangular logs about 2 inches in width and 2 inches in depth
2 tablespoons of sesame oil
Salad
8 cups of mixed greens washed and patted dry or 2 – 5 oz. bags of mixed greens
1 – 15 oz. can of mandarin oranges drained
1/2 cup of Sunkist brand Honey Roasted Sliced Almonds
1/4 cups of green onions thinly sliced
1/4 cup of cilantro minced, stems removed
Baked Won Ton Strips
1 cup of Brianna’s Home Style Ginger Mandarin Dressing

Technique

Make Baked Won Ton Strips per recipe instructions and set aside. Slice green onions and cilantro and set aside. Preheat a grill and rub oil over tuna. Grill tuna on each side for about 1 minute. This will create a rare cut of meat. If you prefer it more done, cook a bit longer. Keep in mind that tuna generally is best served rare. Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of the tuna and the type of grill you are using. Set aside and prepare salad. In a large bowl add all the salad ingredients and pour dressing over salad and toss until evenly coated. Cut tuna and plate by evenly distributing salad ingredients and topping with tuna.
