Fancy Tuna Melt

One of my favorite hearty sandwiches to bite into after a long day is that ole' stand by, the tuna melt. The fact that cheese and tuna, which by all means shouldn't taste good together, combine so effortlessly to create a protein-filled grilled cheese, is so wrong that it's right. I like to fancify this humble sandwich up sometimes though - with exotic (oh la la) cheeses and heirloom tomatoes. I say there's nothing wrong with putting a bit of a new twist on an old classic. Try this version, I think you'll like it.

2 slices, whole wheat bread
Heirloom tomatoes
Feta Cheese
Chihuahua cheese, thinly sliced
1 can of solid chunk tuna
Celery Stalk
One small white onion
Dijon mustard
Mayo
Dill
Salt & Pepper

1) Mix together the tuna, mayo and mustard (to taste), diced celery pieces, and a few pieces of diced onion. These are raw, so trust me, don't overdo it.
2) Line the bread with the tuna mix, add sliced tomatoes, feta cheese and top with a thin slice of Chihauhua (cheese, you weirdo). Season with salt and pepper
3) Toast in the over for 15 minutes or so, until the bread is crispy and the cheese is perfectly melted.
4) Enjoy your fancy comfort food.

LOVE the tuna melt! It was a perfect day for a warm sandwich today. I wish I would have thought of that myself!

That looks incredible. If you don't mind me asking, where did you get those tomatoes? I have a little food blog myself, and I'm always looking for new places to get good produce in the city.

Hi Vanessa!

Funnily (is this a word?) enough, a coworker gave these to me. They were from Trader Joe's. They were good but not as good as regular farmer's market heirlooms. I'd recommend the Daley Plaza market on Thursday mornings! I'm going to check out your blog now - thx for the comment :)
