Lite Tuna Melt

About This Recipe:

Today we have another foolproof no-recipe recipe that is too good to not share. Once in a blue moon I get a random craving for a tuna sandwich, and this recipe curbs that craving. Of course, I can’t fathom using actual mayonnaise for something that I make at home, but Greek yogurt makes an amazing substitute. I like my tuna salad to have lots of texture so I add a good amount of celery, pickles, and red onion. And I think seafood always needs citrus, so a good amount of lemon is in order.


Ingredients (4 sandwiches)
Tuna Salad Mix
-8 oz canned tuna, drained
-1/3 cup Greek yogurt
-1/3 cup celery, finely chopped
-1/4 cup pickles, finely chopped
-1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
-1/2 lemon, juiced
-2 tbls parsley, finely chopped
-Salt & pepper

Sandwich Ingredients
-8 slices sourdough bread
-4 slices cheddar cheese
-1 tomato, sliced
-Olive oil

Instructions (15 minutes)

1. Place the bread on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Toast at 450 degrees F for 6 minutes. Then flip, layer on the cheese, and let it melt for another 2 minutes.
2. In a bowl, flake the tuna and mix together with all of the other tuna salad ingredients.
3. Assemble the sandwiches and serve.
