Makes: 6 Servings

This warm toasted sandwich is easy to make. Our recipe uses one slice of bread per serving. An open-faced sandwich has less sodium and fewer calories.


1 can tuna (drained)
2 tablespoons lime or lemon juice
1/2 cup onion (diced)
1/4 cup tomatoes (or 2 tablespoons, about 2 ounces, low-sodium diced tomoatoes, drained, diced)
1/2 cup apple (diced)
1/4 cup celery (diced)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
6 slices whole grain bread (or homemade bread)
1/4 cup fresh parsley or cilantro (chopped, optional)
1 tablespoon cayenne or jalapeño chilies ( diced, optional)
3 slices pasteurized process American cheese (cut into halves)
6 slices tomatoes
6 lettuce leaves


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. In a medium-size bowl, combine tuna, lime juice, onion, tomatoes, apple, celery, and pepper. Mix well.

3. Toast the bread.

4. Place 6 slices of toasted bread on a cookie sheet. Put an even amount of tuna mixture on top of each slice. If using parsley and chilies, add these too.

5. Put ½ slice cheese on top of the tuna and bake for about 3 minutes.

6. Add an extra slice of tomato and lettuce on top if you like.

7. Serve hot.
