What to do with a Tuna Steak: Not Your Average Tuna Salad (aka Big A** Salad)


Sometimes for dinner I make a salad. But it's not your typical salad of lettuce, a few slices of tomatoes and some dressing. That's boring in my opinion. Instead, I make what I call Big A** Salads. I hope you can figure out what that stands for.

My big a** salads typically have several vegetables, a variety of beans and something fun like olives and/or avocado.

This past week I made Not Your Average Tuna Salad (aka Big A** Salad).


Not Your Average Tuna Salad
Ingredients (as much of each as you like)

olive oil
tuna steak
salt & pepper
roasted beets, peeled and sliced
chickpeas
cucumbers, sliced
avocado, sliced
olives
olive oil
lemon juice 


Directions
1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Season the tuna steak with salt and pepper and sear for a few minutes on each side so that the tuna is still raw on the inside.
2. Arrange the beets, chickpeas, cucumbers, chickpeas and avocado on a plate.
3. Slice the tuna and add to the plate.
4. Dress the salad with olive oil and lemon juice.

All done!!!
