Texture-Happy Tuna Salad

  • 1 T. cooking fat (I used sesame oil)
  • 1 small serving ahi tuna
  • 2 c. mixed greens
  • 1 c. dried green beans
  • 1 small carrot, grated
  • 2 T. rice vinegar
  • 1 T. tamari
  • 1 tsp. chili oil
  • 2 tsp. black sesame seeds

Heat the cooking fat of your choice over medium-high heat in a small nonstick skillet. Once hot, add the tuna and sear on both sides, giving it 1-2 minutes to cook. Remove the tuna from the pan and allow to rest on a cutting board. Slice it carefully into thin strips and set aside.

On a serving plate, arrange the greens, dried beans, and grated carrot. Add the seared tuna.

Combine the vinegar, tamari, and chili oil in a small, resealable jar. Shake vigorously and drizzle over the salad. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve immediately.
