    Outstanding, an excellent fresh, tasty salad. Use a combination of red, orange, and yellow tomatoes for a visually stunning presentation. The combination of fresh cilantro, basil, green onion, chilis, and tomato makes for a fresh, vibrant look and taste. Sear the tuna in a very hot skillet or wok, and turn with tongs to sear both sides for maximum flaor.  -  12 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really really good -way better than it looks like it's gonna be!! And I even used cheap canned tuna! I also added a touch more honey to the dressing, a bit of chile paste, some frozen peas, cashews and served over mixed greens. Yummy, inexpensive and healthy!!  -  27 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Be sure to chop the tuna into fairly small pieces, less than 1".  -  17 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
