I have always loved tuna melts. :) Lots of mayonnaise, cheese, and high carb bread. I am dropping a bit of winter weight by eating lighter. So here is my new healthier version of the tuna melt, for a leaner and lighter new year ahead of us all. You don't miss a thing here, it's de-lish!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We love a tuna melt and this healthier version of the sandwich is delicious. It cuts back on the fat, but you don't lose any of the taste. The bit of mayo makes it creamy and we like the crunchiness of the added celery. We were curious about microwaving the sandwich. With the bread being toasted and the quick time in the microwave, it didn't get rubbery. Just melted the cheese a bit. This is quick, easy to prepare, and quite tasty.
