Ahi Tuna Salad with Peanut Sauce

Ahi Tuna Salad with Peanut Sauce

Jump to Recipe

It took me a few weeks to get this one written up, but I promise, it’s worth the wait! This salad is really satisfying, but the macros are great! I love Ahi tuna. It is one of my favorite fish to eat. I get my Ahi at Aldi. They have a great quality product and at awesome price! It’s in the freezer section and about $8 for 3 pieces. This salad is packed with veggies and protein, while being low in fat. But it’s big on flavor! This sauce is one of my new favorites. It is great on a salad, or noodles…I could eat it with a spoon:)

This salad would be great for lunch or dinner. You can even prep it ahead of time. I prefer to cook my fish right before, but it would be wonderful cold as well. I probably would not reheat the tuna. It would cook too much for my liking. I love a rare Ahi tuna that is just seared on the outside.
