    P4's Note:

    This dish is so delicious. My husband and I love it in the summer when we are lucky enough to find sushi-grade tuna. A light, but filling summer meal, and impressive enough for company. Please don't overcook the tuna...

      This sounds great! I have a similar nicoise recipe that I use that calls for putting all the usual salad ingredients over couscous instead of lettuce. It makes a nice change.
