Tuna melts are a classic and this was a nice take on them. I used reduced-fat crescents, light cheddar cheese and "Zesty Tuna Salad" from this site which already had pickle relish in the recipe. The only other thing I added was chopped tomato because what's a tuna melt without tomatoes... This was easy to put together and made for a nice lunch. No matter what tuna salad you choose to use it's bound to be tasty!

I made a simple tuna salad from one can drained tuna, mayonnaise, a little chopped celery, onion/garlic powder and pepper. I do not keep dill relish on hand, I added in one chopped garlic dill pickle. The crescent rolls I used were reduced fat. My sons ate all eight. ALL OF THEM. Very simple twist on a sandwich and soup.....when served with a bowl of soup. I loved this because it made dinner so quick and easy and the kids thought it was just fabulous.



Well, I think this missed in a couple areas; the amount of filling to roll, and the sweet flavor of the crescent dough with tuna. I was looking for a tuna melt sandwich, and I could see that 1/2 cup of salad was very small so I used a cup. That still turned out to be a very small amount compared to the dough, but you couldn't really fit more filling in a single crescent. Left out the relish since I had pickles in the tuna salad itself and didn't bother with the egg (which is just for aesthetics). I think biscuit dough would work much better, the flavor isn't as sweet, and you could make it more like a sandwich by using more filling and folding over. I almost gave this a 2 star rating, but some might be looking for a roll on the sweet side that has just a hint of tuna. Personally I wont be using this again.
