Notes

Substitute:
Substitute mahi mahi steaks for the tuna steaks.

Use Your Broiler:
To cook tuna under the broiler instead of on the grill, place marimated tuna on rack of broiler pan. Broil, 4 to 6 inches from heat, 5 to 7 min. on each side or until tuna flakes easily with fork.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoon dry white wine
  • 1 envelope GOOD SEASONS Zesty Italian Dressing Mix
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, divided
  • 4 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tablespoons chopped red onions
  • 1/2 cup ATHENOS Traditional Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • 4 tuna steaks (1 pound)

Directions

Mix first 4 ingredients until well blended. Stir in 1 Tbsp. basil. Mix 2 Tbsp. dressing mixture with remaining basil, tomatoes, onions and cheese; set aside. Pour remaining dressing mixture over tuna in shallow dish; turn to coat both sides. Cover; refrigerate 30 min. to 1 hour to marinate.

Heat greased grill to medium-high heat. Remove tuna from marinade; discard marinade. Grill tuna 5 to 7 min. on each side or until tuna flakes easily with fork.

Serve topped with tomato mixture.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
