Summer Favorite: Grilled Tuna Salad with Avocado and Grapefruit

July 07, 2009

photo-1-tuna salad

I had a wonderful, light, crispy salad last week while in Alys Beach Florida so I decided to try to replicate the recipe at my own house. Grilling fresh tuna is so easy, and the lemon marinade makes it so fresh and juicy. Serve the tuna on mixed greens with your favorite toppings. This version includes avocado, pink grapefruit, tomatoes and carrots. If you don’t have time to make your own dressing, use your favorite jarred version. Grilled Tuna Salad with Avocado and Grapefruit is a great way to taste summertime and the good things in life.
