Zesty salsa and an Italian-themed tomato salad are the perfect partners to succulent tuna steaks. For best results, sear tuna quickly on a very hot grill.

Instructions

  1. To make salsa verde, process parsley, anchovies, capers, garlic and lemon rind in a food processor until finely chopped. With motor running, add lemon juice, oil and 2 tablespoons water and continue processing until well combined. Transfer to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and set aside.
  2. Place onion, tomatoes, olives, oil, vinegar, oregano and sugar in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine.
