Grilled Tuna Salad with Garlic Dressing

This salad is as good if not better than the way it looks! Fresh grilled tuna on a bed of greens with onion, cherry tomatoes, and hard-boiled eggs. For added texture and flavor, we sprinkle chopped walnuts and drizzle with a garlic dressing. This is one packed salad! Recipe from ruled.me

Ingredients
  

  • 2 large eggs
  • 8 oz asparagus spears
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1/2 medium red onion

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tsp garlic powder

Instructions
 

  • Gather and prep all ingredients.
  • In a bowl, put together mayonnaise, water, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to make the dressing. Stir until combined well and set aside.
  • Boil the eggs for about 8-10 minutes. When cooled, peel and slice in half.
  • Wash and cut the asparagus into equal lengths. Fry the asparagus in a pan by itself.
  • Equally pour the olive oil on both sides of the fresh tuna and fry for 3-5 minutes on both sides. Season the tuna with salt and pepper, to taste.
