Mustard Dressing:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
1/4 teaspoon paprika
Salt and pepper to taste

1 1/2 pounds fresh tuna steak, cut 1 inch thick
Salt and pepper to taste
2 star fruit, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
8 cups torn mixed lettuce
1 cucumber, peeled if desired, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
3 green onions, chopped


1. Prepare Mustard Dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk together all ingredients until well blended; refrigerate until ready to use.
2. Prepare Salad: Prepare outdoor grill with coals 5 inches from heat source or preheat broiler. Season tuna with salt and pepper, arrange tuna on a lightly oiled grill tray or broiler pan. Place 1/4 cup of the mustard dressing in a small bowl; brush some dressing over fish.
3. Grill or broil about 3 to 4 minutes; turn fish, and arrange star fruit slices alongside fish on grill tray or broiler pan. Brush fish and star fruit slices lightly with dressing. Grill or broil for 3 to 5 minute more for medium. Remove from grill, slice.
4. In a large salad bowl, toss together lettuce and cucumber. Add remaining 3/4 cup dressing; tossing to coat. Divide salad evenly among 6 dinner plates. Divide sliced tuna on the center of each salad; place star fruit around each salad plate. Sprinkle salads with green onions and serve.

Star fruit, also called carambolas, do not need to be peeled. Just slice and remove seeds to serve.
