Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the broiler.
  2. Put the tuna in a bowl and break it up with a fork; add in the diced pickle, onions, celery, mayo, salt, and pepper; mix well.
  3. Arrange the bread on a baking sheet and place under the broiler; toast until the tops are light golden brown, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes (watch carefully to make sure they don't burn).
  4. Turn the bread over, toasted side down, and spread the tuna salad evenly on the untoasted side of each slice.
  5. Top each piece with 2 or 3 tomato slices, and then with 2 slices of cheese.
  6. Place the open-face sandwich under the broiler, heat until the cheese has melted, 2-3 minutes, and serve.
