Ingredients

2 large
tuna steaks
2 large
lemons
2 Tbsp
herbs de provence
6 Tbsp
olive oil
1 pkg
package of pre-washed salad greens
6 slice
sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
2 Tbsp
chopped flat-leaf italian parsley
2 Tbsp
chopped scallions, for garnish
1 tsp
salt and pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Grate or miroplane the rinds of both lemons, and toss in a small bowl with two tablespoon of olive oil, and 1/2 teaspoons of salt, pepper and Herbs de Provence. Rub the mixture on both sides of each tuna steak.
2
Grill, or sear (in a non-stick skillet) the tuna, 3-4 minutes per each side. Be careful not to overcook- you want the steaks to be pink in the center and lightly browned on each side. Remove the steaks and let rest for 5 minutes.
3
In a large bowl, place the salad greens, sundried tomatoes, and chopped parsley.
4
In a small bowl, slice the lemons in half and squeeze the juice. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil, and the rest of the salt and pepper. Whisk to blend completely. Pour half of the dressing over the salad and toss to coat completely.
5
Thinly slice the steaks on an angle, and arrange on top of the salad; drizzle the rest of the dressing over the tuna. Sprinkle with chopped scallions and serve up!
