Ahi Tuna with Radish and Pea Salad - From Saveur

Start by grilling or broiling a 1/2lb tuna steak until it is med. rare.  Slice the tuna into strips.  Make the dressing by mixing 1T soy sauce, 1 1/2t red wine vinegar, 1t honey, 1/2t Dijon mustard, 1/2t Sesame oil, 1 clove of minced garlic, 1 2 inch piece of ginger, minced, 5 1/2t freshly ground black pepper.  Mix the above and 3/4C canola oil in a blender until smooth.  Slice 8 oz. sugar snap peas into 1 inch piece and pour the dressing over the peas and tuna and refrigerate until ready to serve  Add sliced radishes and 1/4C chopped mint leaves.  Toss to coat with the dressing.  We served the salad with sliced tomatoes and a dry white wine.  A very nice summer salad
