The 21-location casual Daily Grill introduced its Simply 600 Menu in January. All the items—including sandwiches, salads, burgers and tacos, as well as meat, seafood and pasta entrees—come in at 600 calories or less. Kastel designed the menu for people who want to enjoy great food without the guilt. Here, ahi tuna is lightly seasoned with Cajun spices and seared rare for a dish that’s as pleasing to the eye as it is to the waistline.

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups mixed greens
6 artichoke hearts
1/3 cup green beans, blanched, cooled and sliced
1/3 cup carrots, julienne cut
1/3 cup red bell peppers, julienne cut
1 oz. Asian style vinaigrette
1 tbsp. sliced green onions
1 tsp. toasted almonds
1/2 tsp. sesame seeds
5 oz. blackened ahi tuna

Steps

1. In bowl, toss to combine greens, artichoke hearts, green beans, carrots, bell peppers and vinaigrette; place on large square plate. Garnish with green onions, almonds and sesame seeds.

2. Slice blackened ahi tuna and lay across plate or on top of salad.
