Best Tuna Melt (New Jersey Diner Style)

Rating: 4.5 stars 694
If you order a tuna melt in a New Jersey diner, you'll get something very similar to this! My method of topping the tuna salad with cheese FIRST, then tomato and more cheese, keeps the toppings from sliding off the bread.

A very refreshing and light snack or meal! This dish makes a great Mediterranean alternative to your stereotypical tuna salad made with mayonnaise. Serve with whole grain crackers.

Tempting Tuna Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 43
Something a little different to have on some nice crisp torn lettuce leaves or in a sandwich. Gala and Pink Lady apples are my favorites for this.

Mayo-Free Tuna Sandwich Filling

Rating: 4.5 stars 50
An alternative to the everyday mayo-drenched tuna salad. Great on whole grain bread with melted cheddar.

Where's the Tuna Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 31
This is a tuna salad that makes those of us who love the veggies happy! Even people who don't normally like tuna will generally like this one. Serve on pita, or on your favorite bread or roll. Stuff a tomato, bell pepper, or zucchini with the blended salad. This makes 4 sandwiches or 2 generous salad servings.

Avocado Tuna Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 23
Great tuna avocado salad as a side dish or meal. Serve on toasted bread (gluten-free if needed), on top of greens, or enjoy it all by itself.

How to Make a Tuna Melt

Rating: 5 stars 92
This is dedicated to all those chefs who tell you to never, ever mix fish and cheese together; and yet there they are, at the diner at 2:00 in the morning. And you know what they eat? Tuna melts. And the reason they do is because it is delicious.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 2305
This is a really great tuna salad recipe I got from a friend who used it in her catering service business many years ago. The secret ingredients are the curry and Parmesan cheese! Odd combinations but this makes a terrific tuna sandwich! She used it for an appetizer with gourmet crackers and people always wanted her recipe. I have never tasted another tuna salad quite like this one, and it has been my favorite recipe for tuna salad for many, many years.
