This is the perfect light summer dinner.

Sauteed Tuna on a Bed of Greens

◦3 cups torn Romaine lettuce

◦3 cups torn red leaf lettuce

◦1 cup chopped endive

◦1 cup torn radicchio

◦1 cup sliced mushrooms

On six individual salad plates, arrange lettuce, endive, radiccho, mushrooms, snow peas and tomato. Set aside. In large skillet, over medium-high heat, cook garlic in margarine for one minute. Add tuna steaks and cook, browning on both sides, until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes. Remove fish and break into chunks. Arrange tuna on individual salads; set aside. In same skillet, add vinegar, sugar, mustard and pepper; heat through. Drizzle vinegar mixture over salads; serve immediately.
