  • 2 tuna steaks - room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • Fresh cracked pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon deli mustard
  • 2 teaspoons capers - roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper - sliced
  • 1/2 cup snow peas
  • 1 celery stalk - cut in half and sliced thinly at a diagonal
  • 1 bunch scallions - sliced thinly at a diagonal
  • 1/2 red onion - sliced thinly


  • 1 Heat the indoor grill and spray with cooking spray or olive oil to prevent tuna from sticking.
  • 2 While grill is heating up, make the dressing for the salad. In a bowl mix the chopped capers, Dijon mustard, 1/2 cup of olive oil and some fresh cracked pepper with a whisk. Set aside.
  • 3 Season one side of the tuna with 1 teaspoon of salt, fresh cracked pepper and a light drizzle of olive oil.
  • 4 Put the seasoned side down and season the other side.
  • 5 Cook tuna until desired temperature (1 1/2 minutes per side for rare, 2 1/2 for medium to medium well).
  • 6 NOTE: We suggest rare for immediate consumption and cooked medium to medium well, if packing for lunch. Let the tuna steaks rest for a couple of minutes before slicing.
  • 7 Add the tuna in to the bowl with the dressing and gently toss with a rubber spatula.
  • 8 Add the sliced veggies and toss together.
  • 9 Serve on a bed of salad greens, with a baguette, crackers or anything you desire!
