Recipe Directions for Mediterranean Tuna Melt

  1. Adapted from a recipe in Everyday Food; makes 2 servings, so find a friend.

  2. (you could also use provolone or mozzarella here, if you wanted that more ?melted? experience)

  3. Optional: Balsamic Vinegar for drizzlin? over the top

  4. Heat broiler. In a bowl, combine first nine ingredients (tuna through mustard); season with salt and pepper to taste.

  5. Lay toasted bread slices on a broiler-proof baking sheet; top with spinach or arugula, then divide the tuna mixture between the two pieces of bread. Sprinkle with the feta. Broil until golden and delicious looking, 2 to 4 minutes. Drizzle a little balsamic vinegar over the top if you?d like a little extra something and then eat.

  6. * If you want to use tuna in water, just drain and add about 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the tuna mixture.
