Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place bread slices in the oven to toast while it preheats, and while you make the tuna salad.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the tuna, mayonnaise, salt, balsamic vinegar, mustard and dill pickle until well blended. Remove bread from the oven, and pile the tuna mixture onto one slice. Sprinkle cheese over the other slice of bread.
  3. Bake for 7 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cheese is melted and tuna is heated through. Place the cheese side of the sandwich on top of the tuna side. Cut in half and serve immediately.

What it lacks in pizazz it makes up for with mush. This is a homely sandwich -- Swiffering in sweatpants, shopping without makeup, watching Rachael Ray. It forgives you your lack of properly calibrated measuring devices, and this commitment to mediocrity is oddly endearing. Sometimes we don't want to feel held to society's standards of excellence. Sometimes we don't want to compete. Sometimes, maybe more often than we'd like to admit, we just want to melt two or three pasty-white ingredients together and look at Facebook for an hour. This dish is almost an act of rebellion, if you think about it.

Uber-quick and easy to make, and tastes great to boot. Have discovered that certain brands of tuba make this filling a little more watery than desired. Bumble bee is the best brand I've found to use so far. Thanks for a great recipe!

This was an excellent, yet basic tuna melt recipe. It was not too difficult to prepare, and it was so tasty. I enjoyed the balsalmic, dijon and dill pickle flavors, they blend well together. I found that the tuna mix was enough for two sandwiches. What a great idea to have the bread toast in the oven while you make the filling, I like multitasking! I would definitely make this recipe again, I wouldn't change a thing!
