    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Trust me you will be craving this often once you try it! --- you may use regular white salt but the seasoned salt is better, also use as much cheese and tomato slices as desired, I sometimes add in some chopped sweet yum yum pickles to the tuna filling too --- low-fat mayonnaise and cheese may be used :)

Whether you've cooked for 20 years or 20 days this easy recipe will leave you with a smile on your face! Quick and easy to put together and absolutely delicious! Thanks Kitt! This is a recipe in my "tried and true" collection that I will be making for many years to come!

      This was an excellent tuna melt. I loved the flavor from the seasoning salt, added lots of black pepper and instead of minced parsley, I used about 3/4 tsp. dried tarragon. Served on an English muffin with American cheese because that's what I had on hand...but can't imagine it being any better! Great recipe, love the simplicity, and you're right, Kittencal, it really cures a craving! Thanks for sharing this delight that is sure to be a regular in our household.

      Loved it. I used white onions, as I was out of green. Loved the crunch from the celery, and the double cheese makes the sandwich. Thanks!
