Grilled Ahi Tuna Salad with Easy Low Fat Dressing

Ahi tuna is one of my favorites – hot, cold, as poke.  Here is a great way to use it as a main dish salad.  I took it for lunch at my desk and totally enjoyed it!

Grilled Ahi Salad

What you need:

  • 2  5-oz Ahi Steaks
  • 3 cups torn romaine leaves
  • 1 cup small arugula leaves
  • 4 chopped green onions, whites and green

Dressing –

by adding a small amount of dressing to low or non fat plain Greek yogurt, you lower the fat and calories by more than half and still have a delicious flavor!

  • ¼ cup low fat, plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon ranch dressing
  • Fresh ground pepper


How to Do it:

Cook the ahi in a grill pan or on the grill on high heat, searing both sides.  As soon as it begins to brown with those caramelized bits on the surface, remove it from the heat.  Remember to watch it – you don’t want to over cook it.  It’s that rare, pink meat thathas so much amazing flavor!

Allow to cool and cut into thin slices.

In a small bowl, whisk the yogurt and dressing together.  Add some fresh ground pepper and mix well.  Toss with the vegetables.

Place salad in bowls and top with equal amounts of the ahi.

Makes four delicious servings!
