Sesame Tuna Salad

Sesame Tuna Salad
This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

Toasted sesame oil transforms a humble staple like canned tuna into an elegant supper. We love the crunch of napa cabbage in this salad, but romaine lettuce would also work if you happen to have that on hand.

Ingredients
Prep: 25 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes
  • 1/4 cup
    rice vinegar, or lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons
    canola oil

    minced fresh ginger

    water-packed chunk light tuna, drained

    sliced sugar snap peas, or snow peas

  • 6 cups
    thinly sliced napa cabbage
  • radishes, julienne-cut or sliced

    fresh cilantro leaves

    sesame seeds

    Freshly ground pepper, to taste
