It has taken some time, but I am finally to the point where I miss seafood at times. Although nothing will be changing in the near future about my diet, I have gotten creative. For many reasons people are unable to to eat ahi salad, whether it be a fear or uncooked meat, or a seafood allergy. I made this recipe as a refreshing snack, but also it’s fun that it is reminiscent of the decadent salad I once enjoyed.
*Makes 2 servings
1 well-peeled (supremed) grapefruit, cubed
1 tsp white miso paste
1 tsp minced ginger
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp sesame oil
Red pepper flakes to taste, depending on spice tolerance
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp agave nectar
2 tbsp chopped seaweed (nori)
1 to 2 tsp sesame seeds
Crispy dried jalapenos (optional)
Whisk together dressing, but do not top until ready to serve. It is not as good if it sits for more than 30 minutes or so, I find.Top with seaweed and sesame seeds and serve.

In addition to wanting to keep up with our 2013 fitness goals, it is also good to eat healthy food to ward off the sickness which so often comes with the winter months. This salad is packed with vitamin a, vitamin c, fiber, and protein. It makes a great complete meal, or can work as a side along with a main dish. This yummy salad was a collaboration with Brown Vegan. Make sure you watch her video for a delicious Asian tofu salad and subscribe to her channel!
