Perfect!!! would not change a thing. Of course the key is good tuna. and dont cook more than 2 min. per side. Serve with a light red wine.

This salad was excellent. Even my 8-yr-old liked it without the tuna. It also held up reasonably well for leftovers for lunch the next day. I made this for company and prepared the salad about 3 hrs. ahead with the dressing then made the tuna at the last minute. Will definitely make this again.

This was a tasty and filling dinner salad. I didn't use any pre-cut veggies, and the meal still only took about 25 minutes to prepare. I thought the dressing was slightly bland, so I added about 1/2 tsp minced ginger--Yum! Would definitely make again, and may try mango and avocado next time.

My boyfriend says this is his new favorite meal--it is delicious! I doubled the recipe so we'd have enough for four servings. I also substituted a teaspoon of dried basil for each tablespoon of cilantro the recipe calls for, as we don't care for cilantro. The flavors of this salad are wonderful--the dressing is tangy with a kick of spice, and the tuna tasted mellow as a nice contrast. I served this with Riceworks sea salt-flavored brown rice crisps and a dessert of pineapple sorbet, and I will definitely make this again, especially as the weather warms up.

Delicous and light! Definitely need to get good quality tuna. I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't add cilantro and used mixture of basil and parsley instead. I'd make this again!

I made this Pan-Grilled Thai Tuna Salad for my husband's and my dinner last night, and it was delicious! We both loved the taste. I suggest that you sprinkle either toasted sliced almonds or toasted sesame seeds over the top of the salad. This improves the already great taste of the salad. I would serve this to company, and think it would be great for a luncheon served with freshly baked french bread,and sorbet for dessert.

SO good. I'm not the type to put oranges in my salad, but they were perfect. Roasted sesame seed on top at the end are a must. Make this!

We enjoyed this flavorful and light salad. Hubby and I split a half-pound tuna steak, which was plenty. We aren't fans of fruit in salad, so I subbed avocado. I kicked up the spice with extra chile paste - awesome! I have little confidence in my fish-cooking skill, but this was super easy and came out just right with 2 minutes on each side. Sprinkled sesame seeds on top as advised by previous reviewers & it was a great touch. Served with stir fried snow peas and mushrooms.

Made to recipe. Excellent salad, bright & fresh flavors that paired really well with the grilled tuna. Great dinner on a warm Spring evening, definitely company-worthy.

Awesome. The oranges made this salad. Pair great with the tuna. Also added avocado which added to flavor too.
