"Just a couple of changes to a tuna melt, but its nice when someone writes it down. We use some "Finlandia Rye" pitas, there about 4" to 5" across, but the extra flavour and nutrition is great. Like ..." See moremany others, I now omit the salt, or I use a pinch of sea salt. My favourite change is to replace the tomato with red/yellow/orange bell pepper. Just cut the pepper into 1/2" strips, put about 4 on a pita, between the cheese and tuna. Bell peppers have three times the vitamin c of an orange."
"On a whim I tried this for a family visit today. Not only were there no left overs, but my 2 year old daughter loved it! A nice variation is to add two hardboiled eggs chopped. Very delicious recip..." See moree! The best part was how quick it is prepared...I was able to spend more time visiting than cooking. A+ in my book!"
