    Ingredients

    Scale
    Tuna Mixture:

    Instructions

    1. In a small pot, warm black beans on stovetop.
    2. While beans are warming, in a small bowl combine tuna, yogurt, mustard seed, relish, salt and pepper. Start with a minimal amount of yogurt, mustard seed and relish and add more until it reaches the flavor and consistency you prefer. We typically add at least 3 tablespoons of mustard and 2 tablespoons of relish. Mix well and set aside.
    3. Place desired amount of spinach in two bowls. Top with clementine slices, avocado and tuna mixture. Top with warm black beans.
    4. You can drizzle with a small amount of balsamic vinaigrette if you desire. We enjoy the flavors of the ingredients mixed together and prefer it as is, with no dressing added.

    Notes

    We recommend wild-caught seafood and organic ingredients when feasible.
