Healthy Tuna Melt Sandwich



Anyone else a big fan of tuna melts?


There’s just something about the salty & creamy flavours of the tuna salad, mixed with that gooey melted cheese... and then there’s that nice crunch from the toasted bread at the end - ugh! It’s just so damn tasty.


Although I love digging into a good tuna melt now and again, most traditional tuna melts are pretty calorie-dense, using thick ciabatta buns instead of thin & crispy whole grain toast, or using LOTS of mayo instead of a simple & tangy dijon mustard. (And traditionally, you can forget about greens!)


But since I’m not giving up on my love for tuna melts any time soon, I’m sharing my favourite way to turn that classic tuna melt into a simple & healthy alternative that you can prep and pack with you - wherever you go! Recipe available below.
