CCC - Creative Cooking Crew Challenge BLT

This months challenge for CCC was to use the letters BLT in a sandwich with out using bacon, lettuce and tomato. Well this one had me stumped all month long until Monday. I finally came up with my idea after mulling it over and talking with a friend. I made Beet greens (B) Lemon aioli (L) and Tuna (T) and it came out tasty and delicious.
 Beet greens. I lightly sauteed some beet greens in a little garlic and olive oil.
Lemon aioli. I made a lemon aioli and I also added a little lime zest along with the lemon zest.
Tuna. I pan seared some tuna with some secret blackening herbs and spices.

My BLT all came together on some 7 grain toasted oat bread because you cant have a BLT unless its on toast and thats the name of that tune. Want the recipe? Here: Saute some beet greens, make a lemon aioli and sear some tuna - then put it together between two slices of toast - BLT!

Looks simply delicious, Dog! We almost did the same sammie, how did that happen considering you were waiting until the last minute? haha! Good to use the beet greens, many people throw them away, not sure what to do with them.
