Seared Tuna Salad

September 28, 2015

This salad is DELICIOUS!   As always,  these days, I prepare quick meals for my family.  This salad can be prepared in 15 minutes.   Super healthy and, very good!   ENJOY!


2 filets raw tuna

2 T. extra virgin olive oil

2 T. lemon pepper seasoning

4 cups mixed fresh greens

2 ripe avocados, sliced

3 hard cooked eggs, chopped

4 slices crisp thick sliced bacon ( I used Wright’s bacon),  cooked crisp and excess fat drained

Creamy balsamic vinaigrette

To Prepare:

Chop tuna filets in to 1-inch cubes.   Place in hot skillet w/ 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and lemon pepper seasoning.   Toss tuna cubes until each side is lightly brown/seared.  * This is a quick process, 2-3 minutes.   Leave inside of tuna pink, rare.  Remove from pan and blot excess olive oil.  Set aside.

Place mixed greens in a large salad bowl.  Add seared tuna, sliced avocado, sliced eggs and crumbled bacon.  Serve with balsamic dressing.   Eat and ENJOY!

I love making quick and delicious dishes for my family.  These easy breaded pork chops turned out so well and, they are hubby and kid approved.   This recipe only took me 10 minutes to prepare, you can’t beat that!

Breaded Italian Pork Loin Chops

4-6 pork loin chops, rinsed and patted dry

3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Ground sea salt

Groud peppercorns

2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs

1/2 cup fresh chopped basil


Dip each pork loin chop in olive oil and set on a tray.  Place bread crumbs, salt and pepper ( 1 t. each) and chopped basil in a large zip top plastic bag.   Place pork chops in the bag, seal and shake until each piece of meat is coated.   Place meat on a baking sheet that has been coated with olive oil.   Bake at 350 degrees 25-30 mins.    Check to ensure the pork chops are cooked in the center.   I served with sweet potato casserole and seasoned green beans.  Would also be great served with steamed asparagus and baked beans.   ENJOY!
