Grilled & Chilled Veggie Tuna Salad Recipe

I am so glad that spring is finally into full swing and many of us are now gearing up for the summertime season. For me personally, I enjoy eating a lot of tuna fish and vegetable salads during the hot summer season so when I saw this recipe land in my email box, I knew I had to share it with all of you.

Hungry Girl's Grilled & Chilled Veggie Tuna Salad Recipe

1 (2.6 oz.) Pouch - Tuna Creations® Sweet & Spicy
8 thin (or 6 thick) asparagus stalks, tough ends removed, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 cup eggplant cut into 1-inch cubes
One 1⁄2-inch-thick onion slice, rings intact
1⁄2 cup cherry tomatoes
3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
2 Tbsp. light balsamic vinaigrette dressing

1.Bring a grill pan sprayed with non-stick spray to medium-high heat. Add asparagus, eggplant, and onion. Cook until slightly softened, 6–8 minutes. Flip veggies, and add the cherry tomatoes to the pan. Cook for 4 minutes. Flip tomatoes. Cook until all veggies are soft and slightly blackened, about 2 minutes. Transfer veggies to a medium bowl. Let cool completely. Chop onion. Cover and refrigerate veggies until chilled, at least 30 minutes. Place lettuce on a large plate or in a large bowl and evenly top with chilled vegetables and tuna. Top or serve with dressing. Yum!
