Tuna Two Ways: Tuna Salad Sammie

Leave a comment

Tuna SaladIn terms of photogenic foods, tuna salad is only slightly more attractive than refried beans. BUT. It terms of comfort foods its up there with the best of the best. The mac and cheeses, the chocolate chip cookies. Especially when its warm and melty.

So for my tuna-two-ways, I give you an open faced tuna salad sammie melt. Yum. Mee.

Open-faced Tuna Salad Sammie Melt
{Inspired by Skinny Taste}

12 oz. canned white tuna in water, drained
1 small green pepper, chopped
1/4 c. red onion, diced
2 tbsp. light mayonnaise
1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
4 slices cheese (I used extra sharp cheddar)
4 slices whole wheat bread
Sliced tomoato
Salt and pepper to taste
Pam olive oil spray (or other cooking spray, but the olive oil is my favorite)

1. In a large bowl combine tuna, green pepper, red onion, mayonnaise, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper and stir to combine.

2. Spray a large skillet with olive oil spray and heat on medium. Place bread in skillet and cover with a piece of cheese. Allow bread to start to brown and cheese to melt, about 3-4 minutes.

3. While still in the pan, scoop tuna salad over cheese and bread. Turn heat to medium-low (so as not to burn your bread) and allow tuna salad to heat.

4. Top with tomato slices. Enjoy!

Serves: 4
