This is total no brainer food… a fast lunch that is extremely nutritious and so delicious. I layer my scoop of tuna and cheese on top of a beautiful slice of ripe tomato as a base for my melt or simply place the tuna salad in a small dish and layer on the cheese. I make this all of the time! If you would like to fortify your food with added protein, whisk a tablespoons of Pure 100% Unflavored Whey Isolate, into your mayo before blending it into your tuna... then add the remaining ingredients.
  • Two 6 ounce pouches, Starkist albacore tuna
  • 2 tablespoons Hellmann's Light mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • Very thinly shaved celery
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices ripe tomato or grape tomato halves
  • One ripe avocado - sliced or scoop from hand
  • 4 thin slices provolone or pepper jack cheese
  1. Prepare your favorite tuna salad - mine is simply tuna, mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, finely chopped red onion, celery, salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat broiler. Assemble tuna melts by placing a thick slice of tomato on a foil lined baking sheet, layer with a scoop of tuna salad, fork smashed avocado, and a slice of cheese covering all. Broil 6 to 8 minutes, until cheese starts to brown, and is bubbling around edges. Use a metal ice cream scoop to neatly portion your tuna for neatness.
  3. Transfer to serving plates. Enjoy your squishy pile of food!
