Time: 30 minutes. Sunset reader Mickey Strang likes to serve this quick salad with classic accompaniments—crusty, buttery sourdough bread and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Gris.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare a grill for medium heat (350° to 450°). In a small bowl, combine honey and mustard. Rub tuna with mixture and let marinate at room temperature, 10 minutes.

Step 2

Use an oil-soaked paper towel to wipe grill grates. Cook tuna just until grill marks appear, 1 to 2 minutes on each side, leaving tuna rare inside. Cut each steak across the grain into 1/4-in.-thick slices.

Step 3

In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup olive oil, the vinegar, and lime juice. In a medium bowl, combine greens, onion, salt, pepper, oranges, avocados, and 2/3 of vinaigrette; toss to coat. Divide salad among 4 plates and arrange tuna slices on top. Serve with remaining vinaigrette on the side.

Step 4

*Look for troll- or pole-caught Pacific albacore tuna; it's more sustainably fished than longline, and the fish have lower mercury levels. U.S. ahi is next best.

Step 5

I made this last night with leftover grilled tuna so I didn't marinate with honey mustard. But made the dressing exactly as stated and used baby spinach/arugula mix. I didn't have any oranges so I substituted mango and added the avocado. It was yummy. It looked beautiful and tasted delicious. I wouldn't hesitate to serve this to guests. And what a great way to use leftover grilled tuna.
