Grilled Ahi Tuna Salad - 2010 Waldorf Eggfest

Ingredients

2 lb ahi tuna
2 each, red, green, and yellow peppers
6 ribs celery
1 med onion
2 bunches green onions white and green parts (optional, I did not use at Waldorf)
1 cup golden raisins
BBQ rub (Dizzy Pig's Tsunami Spin is a favorite)

Instructions

Season the tuna with your favorite rub (DP, Tsunami Spin in this case) and cook (direct, raised grate at 325-400) with some smoke (I used apple and pecan), until the tuna is well done (145 F) and let cool to room temp.  Put in a zip lock bag and break up with your fingers to desired size chunks.

Chop all the veggies into 1/4" dice, mix in the tuna and raisins and add the mayo to the desired consistency (probably about 2 cups for this much).

Season the salad with additional rub to desired flavor and saltiness.  I am guessing I added a heavy tablespoon.  The truth is, I added some, tasted it and added some more. 

Notes

Note: You can do the same thing with grilled chicken that is chopped fairly fine. I prefer to add granny smith apples in place of the raisins and white grapes, cut in half are also nice.
