This is a food that to me is incredibly simple…I can’t imagine that people haven’t had it before.  The beauty of them is that they are a cross between a tuna salad sandwich and grilled cheese.  My family frequently has these for a weekend lunch, and they’re delicious.  As my Mom and I say, ‘They’re not as bad for you as they taste’

Ingredients (makes two sandwiches):
1 can tuna
1 heaping Tbsp mayonnaise
1 medium dill pickle, diced (or 1 tsp dill relish)
         you can use sweet pickle if you prefer, I just personally don’t like them

Cheddar Cheese 
4 pieces bread (use something that will grill and crisp up nicely, I like pita bread, white bread, or a light sourdough)
butter or olive oil to grill

Mix the tuna, mayonnaise and pickle to make a tuna salad.  Spread the tuna salad on bread and top with cheddar cheese, and then add the other slice of bread to make a sandwich.  Butter the bread (or drizzle olive oil) and place the sandwich in a frying pan on medium heat, so the bread gets crisp and golden and the cheese melts.  Make sure to toast both sides!  This is nice served with veggie sticks, crisps, pickles, and fruit.
