If you like tuna, you will love this recipe. My method of topping the tuna salad with cheese FIRST, then tomato and more cheese, keeps the toppings from sliding off the bread.


Serves: 4 

  • 2 (185g) tins tuna in brine, drained
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 3/4 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices rye bread
  • 8 slices ripe tomato
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1 pinch paprika, for garnish

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Preheat the grill.
  2. In a bowl, mix the tuna, mayonnaise, celery, onion, parsley and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place the rye bread slices on a baking tray and grill 1 minute, or until lightly toasted. Remove from heat and spread with the tuna filing. Place 1 cheese slice over the tuna on each piece of bread, layer with a tomato slice, and top with remaining cheese.
  4. Return layered bread to the grill and cook 3 to 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
