Tropical Tuna 1

The key to making this salad delicious, is finding fresh sushi grade tuna. This can be found in most seafood markets. I love the bright pink color of fresh tuna, it’s such a beautiful fish! Loaded with fresh mango and cucumber with a hint of spicy jalapeno this salad has it all!

You can serve with with some arugula or serve it with some tortilla chips, you really can’t go wrong. I love using a combo of sesame and coconut oil, they provide the perfect balance for the tuna! Keep in mind coconut oil hardens with cold, so you want to add that right before diving in. And trust me, if you serve if at a party there wont be any leftovers!
