This recipe serves: 4  

For the cilantro vinaigrette:
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon freshly chopped cilantro
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper

For the grilled tuna:
4 tuna steaks, about 4 to 5 ounces each

For the green salad:

1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced

Cooking Instructions
For the cilantro vinaigrette:
1. Place the shallots and the vinegar in a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Continue whisking and slowly add the olive oil and cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

For the grilled tuna:
1. Spray the grill grate with nonstick cooking spray and then preheat the grill to medium-high.

2. Season the tuna steaks with salt and pepper.

3. Grill the tuna on both sides until it is cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the tuna steaks.
(The tuna can be grilled in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.)

For the green salad:
1. Slice the tuna into strips and place them in a mixing bowl. Add the black beans and half of the vinaigrette.
