    Lennie's Note:

    This is a favourite with my sister-in-law, although the tomato was my addition. I actually prefer cold tuna salad sandwiches, but this makes a nice change from that.

      My husband and I are big fans of tuna melts. We had to give this one a try because it was a little different from our usual. Very delicious. I added some chopped pickles and boiled eggs to the salad. The Swiss cheese gave it a wonderful flavor. Definitely a new twist on an old favorite. Thanks Lennie, for sharing your recipe.

      Lovely Lunch Thanks Lenny - I used a whole wheat pita instead of a bagel and didn't have a red pepper. Still delicious.

      I was looking for something to do with a bagel for lunch, and I came across this recipe. I did improvise because I didn't have some of the stuff. I used pre-chopped shallots in place of the red onion and jarred roasted red peppers in place of fresh. I also omitted the tomato and used lowfat mayo. I baked it for about 7 minutes, then broiled for about 3. I topped each of them with 1/2 slice swiss and 1/2 slice cheddar. Since it was just me eating, I piled all of the tuna onto two bagel halves. I will definitely make this again...probably tomorrow! Thanks!
