Tuna melts were one of my favorite lunches to eat on weekends when growing up. My mom would often make them on Sundays for a yummy and easy meal to enjoy after church. These melts have a whole wheat bagel as the base with tuna salad on top. And what a tasty tuna salad it is! It’s made with White Albacore Tuna (not that cat food like chunk light kind), fresh crisp onion and celery, and a few spices and herbs. It’s then topped with lots of cheese that melts down into the tuna. So good!
Serve this melt with a side of fruit and/or veggies and you’ve got a delicious balanced meal!
