Spicy Tuna Salad

All the great sushi ingredients in a bowl of healthy salad.

I love this salad because no cooking is involved and it tastes PHENOMENAL. The dressing makes it NEXT LEVEL, so do not skip it.

But I will go on about the beautifully flavored tuna. Once you dice it up into cute little cubes, you will toss it with a simple, yet ideal marinade of Sriracha sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil, honey and scallions. That’s it. Fire it up!

My favorite part of this salad is OF COURSE, the dressing! It’s simple to make, and I highly suggest you pick up a bottle of some KEWPIE MAYONNAISE (if you don’t have some already). It is THE ingredient for at home asian sauces and sushi type of dishes. It tastes SO GOOD. But, of course, regular mayo can work here as well.

The hardest part of this recipe is the prep work of chopping, shredding and washing your greens. But for me, I enjoy the work. It’s therapeutic to chop dice and shred. My most beloved part is eating the final product however.
