A tuna melt is protein-packed with flaked, white tuna and ripe avocado. These two ingredients go together wonderfully in this light recipe. The secret: quartered cherry tomatoes and shallots tossed together in lemon juice and layered upon Sargento® Ultra Thin® Swiss Cheese Slices toasted until melted between slices of crispy French bread.
