Good Ole' Open Faced Tuna Melts

Something about Spring makes me think of all things picnic - tuna salad, chicken salad, fresh fruit, pimento cheese and a delectable crisp white wine. What I love about this tuna salad is its simplicity. You probably have a few cans of tuna already in your pantry and the other items are most likely already in your refrigerator. You can make this tuna salad in about five minutes and you will have enough melts for your entire family!

You Will Need:
  • 15 oz canned tuna, drained
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise or miracle whip
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 6 slices of crusty bread
  • 6 slices of sharp cheddar cheese

Here We Go:
  • Preheat the broiler
  • In a mixing bowl, combine sweet pickle relish, tuna, mayonnaise, celery, salt and pepper
  • Mix thoroughly with wooden spoon     
  • Arrange the bread slices on a work surface        
  • Spread tuna mixture on bread slices
  • Top the tuna salad with a slice of sharp cheddar cheese
  • Place sandwiches on a sheet tray and place under broiler
  • Cook until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes

Happy Feasting!
