This is total no brainer food - a fast lunch that is extremely nutritious and so delicious.

I layer my scoop of tuna on top of a beautiful slice of ripe tomato or halved grape tomatoes as a base for my melt to top with avocado and cheese. One of my favorite meals.


  • Tuna salad
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • sliced ripe tomato or grape tomato halves
  • avocado - sliced or scoop some
  • a thin slice of provolone or pepper jack cheese


  • Prepare your favorite tuna salad - mine is simply tuna, mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, finely chopped red onion, celery, salt and pepper.
  • 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, sliced or 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.
  • Transfer to serving plates.
Enjoy your squishy pile of food!
