This is a simple tasting but wonderful side salad. The ingredients listed are not that easy to find, but you should feel free to substitute other lettuces and herbs that are available. The green beans are important include them if you can. And the dressing is a must. Mix and enjoy!

Grilled Tuna Steaks over Arugula Salad

Grilled Tuna Steaks over Arugula Salad by John Spottiswood
