What you will need:

2 tuna fillets – the fresher the better
Salt and pepper to taste
5 cups of chopped cos lettuce
2 cups of cherry tomatoes, halved
¼ cup of diced red capsicum
½ cup of pitted olives

…and for the salad dressing:

2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
1 clove of crushed garlic
¼ tablespoon of dried thyme

How to make it:

Heat a non-stick fry pan on medium-high.

Put a touch of salt on pepper on either side of the tuna fillets. Sear the fillets for just less than one minute on either side.

Set aside the tuna fillets.

Take a large salad bowl and toss together the tomatoes, lettuce, capsicum and olives.

Take a smaller bowl and whisk together the dressing ingredients.

Using a sharp knife, slice the tuna fillet into two-centimetre slices.

Divide the salad between two plates, top with tuna and finish with dressing.
