Hopefully the answer is “yes”. Stop denying yourself what your heart truly desires, turn that healthy tuna salad into a hot, savory, melty, gooey, buttery sandwich!

*While there is a recipe below, you can simply follow the pictures above, as well as your heart, and I think you will be happy with the results. butter – bread – cheese – tuna salad – cheese – bread – butter.

*Use just about any bread and cheese that you want, but remember to place a layer of cheese both above and below your tuna salad to help ensure you don’t end up with a soggy bottom (or top).
