Tuna Melt

Leaha’s healthy Tuna Melt

Serving s-  3 sandwiches

3 cans Trader Joes tuna- drained. This tuna is in water no salt added.

½ cups chopped bell peppers- I used red and yellow

1 jalapeno chopped with seeds

2 tablespoons chopped onion- red or sweet onion

2 tablespoons Trader Joes fat free sour cream

¼ cup horseradish mustard

2 tablespoons fresh parsley or cilantro

1 small garlic clove chopped

Dash of salt

Fresh ground pepper to taste

Melting cheese- I like fontina cheese or sharp cheddar.

Bread: Miltons or even a soft rye bread.

Butter for the bread

Mix the 10 ingredients in a bowl. You might need to add a little more sour cream, you can decide. Cover and refrigerate for a short time to let the flavors come together. Get your bread, cheese and butter ready for grilling. Butter your bread then place it into your grilling pan. Place the tuna on the bread then the cheese and top it with the other slice of bread. I would say about 2 minutes each side until the cheese is melted and the sandwich is nice and brown on the outside.
