Orange Vinaigrette on Tuna Salad

May I suggest a classy place, local, not a chain? 
Exceptional food? 
If this is what your heart desires and you are in Arlington, then you must make your way to Olenjack's!
And bring your good friends along to enjoy with you!

 Jalepeno soup. Oh this melts in your mouth. And it is NOT spicy, flavored perfectly.

Fried oysters. Perfection in a small bite. 

One of their signature dishes - Shrimp and grits. The green stuff in the middle is mustard greens. 

And I had.. Tuna salad. Not like you expected is it?

Tuna grilled medium rare
Diced red onions
Diced jicama
Diced tomatoes
Diced avocados
Orange Vinaigrette
    • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar OR
    • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar 
    • 1 tablespoon orange zest 
    • 2 small or one large orange, juiced
    • 1 tablespoon sugar or honey
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
    • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
    • 1. Whisk together first 6 ingredients in a small bowl; add oil in a slow steady stream, whisking until blended

Your mouth will think it went to heaven. I am linking up with Designs By Gollum for Foodie Friday.. drop in if your palate needs refreshing new ideas!

Oh Marlis, this looks so good. The tuna is cooked to perfection! The oysters look great! The New York Mets were in Arlington playing the Rangers. It would've been so fun to watch a game and then go there. This place is surely on the list.

I'll be near Arlington this summer. I'll have to try to find that restaurant.
Looks like fabulous food!

Looks delicious. Wish you had posted a few months ago before I was in Ft Worth! It looks like it would have been worth the trip. I am crazy for fried oysters and tuna with avocado. Yummy. Dianne

That sounds not only delicious but easy! I'm thinking it would work well with any seafood or freshwater fish salad.
