Summer Salad of Seared Tuna, Lima Beans, and Tomatoes
If you're a fan of rare tuna, be sure to just lightly sear these steaks so they're still translucent in the middle. Once the steaks are sliced and fanned out, the tuna will shimmer with contrasting tones, resulting in an especially gorgeous presentation.
