Tuna & Avocado Melt
This is a super quick meal that I threw together in under 15 minutes. The ingredients are simple, but, the taste is delicious! It's a bit fancier than a regular tuna sandwich, so, it's worthy of being served for dinner!
1 6oz can of tuna packed in olive oil
2 Tbl shallots, finely chopped
1 Tbl Dijon mustard
salt & pepper to taste
1 Tbl lemon juice
1/2 avocado, cubed
10 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 medium sized French baguette, halved lengthwise & toasted
Set oven to broil.
Mix tuna with shallots, mustard, salt & pepper.
Put avocado in a small bowl. Squeeze lemon juice on avocado and carefully combine (you do not want to mash the avocado- it should maintain it's shape). Add the tomatoes to the avocados and toss gently to combine.
Put Havarti cheese on four slices of bread (use as much or little cheese as you like). Broil cheese bread for 1-3 minutes, just till it's bubbly.
Plate the cheesy bread. Add tuna mixture to bread. Next add avocado/lemon/tomato mixture.
I served this sandwich with a simple green salad. You could also serve it with soup. Enjoy!
