Tuna Salad

Very few things make me happier than a good old tuna sandwich. There are about ten million ways to make your tuna salad. I know you think it's ridiculous for me to tell you how to make tuna, but you'd be surprised how many times people ruin their tuna. Some people get fancy with veggies and sauces and eggs but I like to keep it simple: just mayo, relish, and the tuna. MAYBE I'll put some chopped red onions but not usually. Probably the biggest booboo made when making tuna is use way too much mayo. Just keep it simple, my friends. A little goes a long way. Slap some cheese on it, stick it under the broiler for a few minutes and you're good to go for a great, quick meal.

What you'll need (this will make 2 sandwiches):
4 slices whole wheat bread
1 can light tuna
1-2 tbs. light mayo
1 tbs. sweet relish
4 slices gruyere cheese

1. Drain your can of tuna and break it up in a bowl. To the bowl, add the mayo and relish. Toast your bread (so it doesn't burn in the oven).
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place all 4 pieces of the toasted bread on the paper. On two of the slices, evenly distribute the tuna. On top of the tuna, layer 2 slices of the cheese.
3. Turn on the broiler and let the sandwiches heat up until the cheese is brown and bubbly (DON'T LEAVE UNATTENDED, IT WILL BURN FAST!!!)
4. Serve with some pickles and you're good to go!

enjoy :)
