Tuna Melts with Avocado
1. Preheat broiler to high.
2. Combine 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons thinly sliced shallots, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, 1/4 teaspoon back pepper, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1 can solid white tuna in water, drained and flaked. Add zest of one lemon.
3. Place 1 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice in a small bowl. Cut-up 1 avocado into chunks and add to the lemon juice along with 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved. Add this mixture to the tuna mixture. Toss well.
4. Sprinkle french bread or sliders with swiss cheese. Place under a broiler until the cheese melts. Remove from the oven and top with tuna mixture. If you use french bread, it will be like an open-faced sandwich. If you use the sliders, you will top with the other side. Loved it.
