Sesame Peanut Dressing
1/4 cup avocado oil (or other neutral oil)
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon tamari or soy sauce (certified gluten-free if necessary)
1/4 teaspoon maple syrup
Pinch of salt
Supergreen Tuna Salad
1 (5-ounce) can albacore tuna, drained
4 cups salad greens
2 cups thinly sliced Napa cabbage
1/2 cup thinly sliced English cucumber
1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
Sesame seeds, to taste
In a blender or food processor, combine the ingredients for salad dressing. It makes 6 ounces.
In a bowl, flake the tuna, and combine it with a third of the salad dressing (1/4 cup)*. If the tuna is unsalted, add 1/4 teaspoon salt as well. Set aside to marinate for 10 minutes.
In a salad bowl, combine the salad greens, cabbage, cucumber, red onion, green onions and peanuts.
Toss in the marinated tuna. Add the remaining dressing to taste, and divide between 2 plates. Garnish with sesame seeds.
*Note: Recipe is written lightly dressed. Dressing makes enough for 2-4 additional lightly-dressed salads.
