Tuna & Watermelon Radish Salad with Truffle

The aroma of white truffles is something I love this time of year, and even if you can’t shell out the big bucks (um, who can! 150$ a plate?!) you can still dress your dishes up with the sensual aroma of truffles!

I picked up a bundle of watermelon radishes at the Santa Monica farmer’s market this morning and immediately got to work! They remind me of a dish at Lemonade that I love, so I figured I would put a little Haylie spin on it. Heres what I got…

Tuna steak

Watermelon radish (I love this winter radish! So colorful and not quite as spicy as the radish we are all familiar with…)


Edamame Beans, shelled

Sugar snap peas

Couple pieces of fresh mint

Half of one lemon juice

Generous pinch of white truffle salt

1 tablespoon of white truffle oil

Sesame seeds

Sear the tuna in a touch of olive oil on both sides. Do not cook all the way through. Center should remain bright pink. Let cool in refrigerator

Slice watermelon radishes and cucumbers thin on a mandolin

Slice the sugar snap peas

Tear some pieces of mint

Combine in large mixing bowl. Drizzle with truffle oil and salt. Garnish with sesame seeds!
