  • 2 fresh ahi tuna steaks

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 large ripe avocado, diced

  • 4 cups mixed salad greens

  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

For the dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce (low-sodium, if preferred)

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon honey or a sugar substitute

  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced


  1. Heat a grill or stovetop grill pan over high heat.

  2. Brush the ahi tuna steaks with olive oil and season with salt and pepper on both sides.

  3. Place the tuna steaks on the hot grill or pan and sear for 2 minutes on each side for medium-rare (or to your desired level of doneness). Once done, remove from heat and let it rest for a few minutes. Then, slice the tuna into 1/2-inch thick slices.

  4. While the tuna is resting, prepare the salad dressing. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, lemon juice, olive oil, honey or sugar substitute, minced ginger, and minced garlic.

  5. In a large bowl, combine the mixed salad greens, diced avocado, and thinly sliced red onion. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss gently to combine.

  6. Divide the salad among four plates. Top each salad with slices of the seared ahi tuna and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  7. Serve immediately and enjoy this light, refreshing, and protein-packed salad!
