Sesame Tuna with Ginger Dressing

Dressing:
1 tablespoon ginger, chopped
1/2 tablespoon garlic, chopped
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Scallions, sliced on a bias, and sesame seeds for garnish

In a food processor, add the ginger, garlic, sugar, soy sauce and vinegar. Blend for 30 seconds or so, until combined. Slowly incorporate the oil. Add sesame seeds and scallions. Set aside.

Tuna:
4 six-ounce tuna steaks
1/2 cup mixed white and black sesame seeds
Small amount of oil for cooking Pat tuna steaks dry. Place sesame seeds in a wide bowl and dredge the tuna steaks in the seeds, covering all sides. Heat a large skillet on medium high and coat the pan with oil. When the oil is hot, but not smoking, add the steaks and cook–1 minute per side for rare, 2 minutes per side for medium-rare. Place on a paper towel and let cool.

Salad:
10 oz. mixed baby greens (arugula, spinach, and red lettuce recommended)
1 red pepper, sliced thin
1 yellow pepper, sliced thin
1 cup snow peas, steamed and chilled
1 cup bean sprouts
1/2 cup cashew halves

Divide the greens into four equal portions on plates, then top with the remaining salad ingredients. Drizzle with dressing. Slice each tuna steak into thin strips, and place on top of salads. Garnish with more scallions and sesame seeds, if desired.
Serves 4.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
