Tuna pairs beautifully with this sweet, salty, and spicy Asian vinaigrette.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare salad, combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Combine cabbage and next 5 ingredients (cabbage through 2 teaspoons sesame seeds) in a large bowl.

Step 2

To prepare tuna, heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine five-spice powder, salt, and pepper; rub over tuna. Add tuna to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 2 minutes. Cut into 1/2-inch cubes.

Step 3

Drizzle cabbage mixture with soy sauce mixture; toss to combine. Place 2 cups salad on each of 4 plates; top each serving with 1/2 cup tuna cubes. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon sesame seeds evenly over salads.

This was okay. The dressing wasn't nearly as favorable as I had hoped it would be. Will do the salad again, just not the dressing.
