The closest I've been able to come in recreating one of my favorites! The salad will be fairly greasy, but that is how it is in the restaurant version as well. It just doesn't taste nearly as good with only little dressing. I usually use about 3/4 of the dressing, but you may use less or more. Enjoy!

A very delicious recipe!! We enjoyed every bite and it was sooooo good we both overindulged and ate more than we should have. I added another TBS olive oil and TBS lemon juice/garlic to the dressing because it just wasn't enough to cover the salad and drizzle over the tuna. Let me mention that I don't like a lot of dressing saturating my salad or food so it was just right. I made the dressing early in the day and let it marinate in the frig for several hours it was quite tasty and I didn't find it to be too oily at all. Read More

Excellent. Used a small avacado and small mango. Skipped the peanuts and the chow mein noodles. Doubled the ingredients in the dressing recipe except the oil leaving it at 2 T. Salt and peppered and rubbed the tuna with sesame oil before grilling 2-1/2 minutes on each side. The flavor of the mint and cilantro was surprisingly delicious and fresh. Read More
