Lemon Dill Tuna Melts

Tuna melts for lunch! 😋 I’m not a fan of those heavy mayo tuna salads and instead opt for a lighter dill and lemon juice mixture with tomato, celery, onion and garlic. It’s so delicious! 😍

Lemon Dill Tuna Melts

• 2 cans Tuna; drained
• 1/2 teaspoon Celery Seed
• 1/2 teaspoon Ground Mustard
• 1/4 teaspoon Ground Ginger
• 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
• 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
• 1 1/2 teaspoon Dill Weed
• 1 teaspoon Mayonnaise
• 1/4 cup Onion; chopped
• 1/4 cup Celery; chopped
• 1/4 cup Tomato; chopped
• Salt and Pepper to taste

• 8 slices of bread
• Olive Oil
• 1-2 cups Cheddar Cheese; shredded

1. In a large bowl, mix all of the tuna salad ingredients.
2. Preheat oven to 400°F.
3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and evenly space bread slices over top. Drizzle each slice with olive oil and spoon tuna salad over half.
4. Top each slice with a liberal amount of cheese and place in the oven; baking for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is golden brown and bubbly.
5. Serve open-face or add lettuce, red onion, tomato and cucumbers.
6. Enjoy!
