Salsa Tuna Melts
10 mins (prep 5, cooking 5)
10 ingredients
2-4 servings
I felt like having tuna melts tonight, but didn't want just the same old stuff. (I usually just go for tuna, mayo and lots of black pepper.) This is what I came up with, and it was pretty darned tasty, if I do say so myself. Hope you like it too!(Note: Prep and Cooking times are approximate...I didn't time mine, so I had to guess.)

  • 1 (6 ounce) tuna, drained (i used chunk light tuna in water because that's what i had on hand, but use your favorite.)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (more or less, to taste. i used hellmann's light.)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh salsa (more or less, to taste.)
  • 2 -4 slices bread, toasted. (i used whole wheat this time, but english muffins, sandwich flats or pita bread would also work well)
  • 2 -4 slices american cheese (or your favorite melting cheese)
