3/4 cup Basic Vinaigrette
Zest of 1 lemon, grated
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons dried oregano
4 fresh tuna steaks, about 1/2 pound each
2 tomatoes, seeded and diced
2 tablespoons capers, roughly chopped
1 cup roughly chopped arugula


Whisk together the vinaigrette, lemon zest, garlic, and oregano in a medium bowl. Arrange the tuna steaks in a shallow baking dish and pour 1/2 cup of the mixture over them. Turn the tuna to coat, then cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Heat a grill to high or a grill pan to medium-high. Grill about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare, depending on the heat level. Meanwhile, pour the remaining 1/4 cup of vinaigrette over the tomatoes, capers, and arugula and toss. Serve the tomato salsa over or alongside the tuna.
