Tomato Carpaccio with Tuna

This version of the Italian inspired salad levels up the protein for maximum satiety.  

The tuna provides the bulk of the energy and protein as well as plenty of niacin, B12, choline iron, phosphorus and selenium.  A dollop of tahini brings a Mediterranean twist along with copper, phosphorus, calcium and iron. The spinach adds folate, potassium and vitamin K1 while the tomato boosts vitamins A and C.
