Tomato Tuna Melts

Tuna salad is one of my all time favorite lunches, and yes, sometimes breakfasts. As a kid, my dad packed me a tuna sandwich quite frequently for lunch, and while I loved it, I was always sooo embarrassed of the smell. 

My all-time favorite way to enjoy tuna is with potato chips, but for this recipe I decided to experiment by adding some of my favorite nutrient-dense foods. This recipe subs our mayonnaise for avocado, and bread for scooped out tomatoes. It's tasty and satisfying and great for a light cool summer lunch. Check out the recipe below!

  • 1 can tuna in water
  • 2-3 tomatoes, halved and scooped out
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • dash salt
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded (optional)

In a large bowl mix together tuna, avocado and lemon juice until the avocado is smooth and evenly dispersed. Scoop tuna into the tomato halves. 

Option to melt: top with cheddar cheese and place in toaster oven two to three minutes until cheese is melted. Or place in oven on a low broil for one to two minutes until cheese is melted.
