½ - 1 Tablespoon of Brown Sugar

Mix all ingredients together

1 small package of mixed greens, baby greens (your choice)
1 cup raspberries
1 can of mandarin oranges
Handful of Shaved almonds or walnuts
Handful of dried Cranberries
(2) Sliced Avocados
Feta in Olive oil with green olives, drain the olive oil(can be found at Wal-Mart in the cheese section)
-          Have not tried to use this olive oil in the dressing, might be worth a go.

Combine everything in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing.

Ahi Tuna
(4) 5 oz pieces of Ahi Tuna

1 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
 1 table spoon of pepper corns.
