Tropical Tuna Salad Supper

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by jenne

Recipe from Rachael Ray magazine (from this summer). WOW was this a fun and tasty dinner. . .so different from the usual meat and potatoes! Do NOT skip the oranges or mango (actually I had to skip the mango due to an allergy) because the sweet really pulls this dish together. I actually added a few fresh squeezes of orange juice to the dressing and would do that again. I also just seared my small tuna steaks whole and then sliced them to assure they stayed rare. YUMMO! This is so pretty on the plate!

Wowsa! This was such a fun and delicious recipe! I did end up over-cooking my tuna, but my family didn't want it rare in the center. The flavors in the dressing are excellent! I especially loved the mandarin oranges, avocado and edamame in this recipe. The only change I would personally make next time would be to use a little less of the marinade/sauce amounts. Thanks for a yummy treat! Made during ZWT7 for my Golden Gourmets team.
