Guess what’s right around the corner? Earth Day!
I figured what better way to celebrate than to share a simple and family friendly recipe that we enjoy in our house: A simple tuna melt! The best part is that it gives back to the environment. 🙂
Now, you’re probably thinking “Okay Morgan, how does a tuna melt help the environment?“…
Well, I use Wild Selections Tuna whenever I have a recipe that calls for tuna. Wild Selections prides itself on being environmentally conscious and aware. See that blue eco label on the top right of can pictured above? That’s the MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) Certified Sustainable Seafood label. The tuna is also Non-GMO Project verified + simple and all natural (which are important to me in selecting food that I feed my children).
One other thing that Wild Selections does is that it’s paying it forward by donating thirteen cents per can to the World Wildlife Foundation fishery improvement and marine conservation projects. Their belief is that the ocean needs to be taken care of for the future; not just stability in the present. I wish more companies would think like this!
So are you hungry for some delicious tuna yet?!
Simple Tuna Melt Sandwich
- 2 cans of Wild Selections Tuna in Water
- 2 tablespoons on mayonnaise
- 1-2 tablespoons of sweet relish
- 2 slices of cheddar cheese
- 4 slices of bread
- salt + pepper to taste
In a bowl, mix together tuna, mayonnaise, relish (you can adjust amounts of mayonnaise and relish depending on your preference), salt and pepper.
Heat small nonstick pan on medium heat.
Butter one side of bread and place onto pan.
Add half of the tuna melt mixture to the slice of break in the pan, add slice of cheddar cheese, and then top with another slice of buttered bread.
When the bottom slide of bread is nice and golden, gently flip sandwich over to toast the other side until fully toasted.
Repeat for second sandwich.
