Skinny Tuna Melt

This is a classic comfort dinner food. Adding veggies to your tuna, replacing the full fat cheese and mayonnaise with light mayo and cheese and serving it opened faced makes this classic sandwich lower in fat. Use your favourite whole grain bread and serve with a salad or a cup of soup on the side.
