A slight twist on the traditional tuna melt. Lemon zest, lemon juice, and fresh dill add a nice zing to a classic favorite.

Yay! First to review and you get 5 stars! I have never had a tuna melt before. Cheese and Tuna weirds me out...not anymore though.:) I think swiss is a perfect choice because it is a mild cheese...normally I don't really go for swiss because I love strong cheese - but with tuna this wouldn't work in my opinion. I added jalapenos for kick because that is me. It is a very tasty and easy recipe! Thanks for sharing!! Read More

When made as directed this just doesn't taste very good. The cheese was unusually dry after baking and the juice and dill completely overpower the tuna flavor. It made for a disappointing meal. Read More
