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!

I love a good tuna melt and this 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 I like the crunchiness the celery added. I was 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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
