    Just a couple of changes to a tuna melt, but its nice when someone writes it down. We use some "Finlandia Rye" pitas, there about 4" to 5" across, but the extra flavour and nutrition is great. Like many others, I now omit the salt, or I use a pinch of sea salt. My favourite change is to replace the tomato with red/yellow/orange bell pepper. Just cut the pepper into 1/2" strips, put about 4 on a pita, between the cheese and tuna. Bell peppers have three times the vitamin c of an orange.  -  21 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    On a whim I tried this for a family visit today. Not only were there no left overs, but my 2 year old daughter loved it! A nice variation is to add two hardboiled eggs chopped. Very delicious recipe! The best part was how quick it is prepared...I was able to spend more time visiting than cooking. A+ in my book!  -  22 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very good and enough for two lunches actually even when you cut the recipe in half! I used "Barbie's Tuna Salad" from this site instead of the tuna salad with the recipe because one Tbsp. of mayo for a whole 6 ounce can of tuna just doesn't cut for me.  -  23 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
