How To Make diva diabetic's lemony seared tuna salad

  • 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!
