  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, plus additional for seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus additional for seasoning
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • .5 pound Ahi tuna, cut into 4 strips
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 10 ounce bag baby greens
  • 1/2 English cucumber, sliced


  • Small Bowl

  • Step 1

    Insert the grill grate and close the hood. Select GRILL, set the temperature to MAX, and set a time to six minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the rice wine vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Slowly pour in the olive oil while whisking, until the vinaigrette is fully combined. 

  • Step 3

    Season the tuna with salt and pepper, and drizzle with sesame oil.

  • Step 4

    When the unit beeps to signify it has preheated, place the tuna strips on the Grill Grate. Close the hood and cook for 4 to 6 minutes. (There is no need to flip during cooking.) 

  • Step 5

    While the tuna cooks, divide the baby greens add cucumber slices evenly among 4 plates or bowls.  

  • Step 6

    When cooking is complete, top each salad with one tuna strip. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the top and serve immediately.
