Salsa Tuna Melts

Recipe by LadyAngel1124
READY IN: 10mins


  • 1
    (6 ounce) can tuna, drained (I used chunk light tuna in water because that's what I had on hand, but use your favorite.)
  • 2
    tablespoons mayonnaise (more or less, to taste. I used Hellmann's Light.)
  • 3
    tablespoons fresh salsa (more or less, to taste.)
  • 2 -4
    slices bread, toasted. (I used whole wheat this time, but English muffins, sandwich flats or pita bread would also work well)
  • 2 -4
    slices American cheese (or your favorite melting cheese)


  • Toast your bread until it is light golden brown. (If it gets too dark during this step, the edges will burn when you put it in the oven/toaster oven later.).
  • Drain excess liquid from the salsa if it is very juicy. Otherwise, the tuna mixture will be too runny, and the toast will become soggy.
  • While the bread is toasting, mix the tuna, mayonnaise and salsa in a small bowl.
  • Spread some of the tuna mixture on each piece of toast.
  • Place slices on a foil-lined pan in the toaster oven and heat until tuna mixture is warmed through, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Top each piece with a slice of cheese, and put back in oven until cheese is melted.
  • Enjoy!
