Instructions 

Tuna, Watermelon & Arugula Salad 

  1. Pre-heat a small pan on the stove over very high heat. (The pan must be very hot to prevent sticking)
  2. Season both sides of the tuna with salt and pepper
  3. Add 1 teaspoon olive oil to the pan and heat for about 30 seconds. When the oil is steaming, it’s at the correct temperature
  4. Using tongs, place the tuna in the pan and sear each side for about 30 seconds
  5. When all sides are browned, remove from heat and place on a plate or cutting board.
  6. Once the tuna has cooled, refrigerate until serving time
  7. In a medium bowl, toss watermelon, arugula and green onion with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Refrigerate until serving time

Avocado Dressing

  1. Combine the ingredients in a blender and process at medium speed for about 60-90 seconds, or until desired consistency is reached
  2. Add salt and pepper to taste, then refrigerate until serving time
