When I asked if I should save this one was told "Heck yeah!" Loved the not too heavy mayo and the zing of the lemon juice etc... Was told it is not the usual tuna salad and I too loved the flavors. I tried broiling with a dill Havarti and it was INCREDIBLE! Thanks for posting.

This recipe is a go-to weeknight meal. I use vegenaise rather than mayonnaise and add a tablespoon of sweet relish and some craisins for sweetness and color. Beautiful. Thanks for the recipe.

I was great! I used canola mayo and American cheese with jalapeno peppers in it. Yummy!

The addition of seasoning salt, lemon juice and Swiss makes this a cut above the rest. We had this for lunch today and it will definitely be in heavy rotation.
Thanks once again, Kittencal!

I needed something quick for supper after DD's tennis tourney and these fit the bill. I loved the crunch from the celery and the use of green onions gives it that "right" flavor. I used the rye for DH's and my sandwiches but used wheat for DS and DD's and they were perfect. Thank you for sharing this quick and yummy recipe.

Excellent and easy recipe for a tuna melt sandwich! My husband dislikes tomatoes, so I left them out. Instead I got some leafy green lettuce and added it after the cheese melting stage. We also did ours in low-carb tortillas instead of the traditional bread. Best to put the tuna on an oven/microwave safe dish for melting the cheese because the first time we prepared this our tortillas got too stiff and crunchy while in the oven under the broiler. If you do it on a plate first, you can slide the tuna and cheese right onto a fresh, moist tortilla or wrap. Kudos for the use of lemon, too. Not only did it add a little zing to the tuna, to me it reduced the 'tuna-y' smell and if you're breaking up the pieces/draining by hand, you can rub the empty lemons on your hands to remove the scent. Thanks Kittencal for a great basic recipe!

Really good Tuna Melt! The lemon juice and lemon pepper really add to the flavor of the tuna. Thanks for a great recipe!
