Tuna Melt

In spite of it's simplicity, there is something so comforting and satisfying about a tuna melt. It makes a perfect lunch or dinner and is quick and easy.

This version is a bit gussied up, but still quick and easy and it tastes fantastic!! Mixing the cheese right into the tuna makes it even better than melting it over top (IMHO!).

1 can water packed tuna, drained
2 tbls fat free Miracle Whip/Veganaise/Mayo, etc.
2 garlic dill pickles, finely diced
About 3-4 pepperoncini (Italian pickled peppers), either spicy or sweet
60g aged cheddar cheese, cut into small cubes (or your favorite cheese)
1 tbls fresh lemon zest
1/2 tsp dried dill
Fresh ground pepper, to taste

1 large whole grain flat bun

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Mound onto two halves of the flat bun and put in oven or toaster oven at 350F until cheese melts. Enjoy!
