      Outstanding! I really enjoy a good tuna melt, and this didn't disappoint. The tarragon and the Dijon made a perfect match and elevated this sandwich beyond five *****! Thnx for sharing your recipe, kittycatmom. Made for the French Forum's Herb/Spice of the Month tag game.

      Darn all I can give this is 5 lousy stars and it sure deserves more than that. I made this a few weeks back for KK's Going Green Event before falling ill, and am so glad this was a dish I actually got to eat. I made this almost exactly per the recipe except that like Lauralie I used the tuna in the packets, have developed quite a taste for that, and on the sandwich added some radish sprouts I had extra of, and due to dietary restrictions didn't use any tomato. Tuna Melts are one of my favorite lunch items when I go to restaraunts and never thought to make it at home, but now that I have this recipe with its refreshing and flavorful ingredients I won't be ordering it out anymore. Thank you dear for a super sandwich.
