The nutritional values have been calculated based on my selections of bread and cheese. We had this at our "Lunch Club" at work and it was delicious. The nutritional values have been calculated based on my selections of bread and cheese. We had this at our "Lunch Club" at work and it was delicious.

Ingredients

    2 small cans Tuna in Water - Drained
    1/4 c chopped Green Olives
    2 Tbsp Olive Oil Mayo
    2 Tbsp Pesto Sauce
    Juice from 1 Whole Lemon - Squeezed
    1 small red onion - Diced

    Four slices Bread of your choice
    Six slices Cheese of your choice
    Large tomato sliced - 4 thick slices

Directions

Mix Tuna, Olives, Mayo, Pesto, Onion and lemon Juice in a bowl. Place cheese on bread, spread 1/4 of tuna mixture on cheese, place large tomato on top, with 1/2 slice of cheese on top. (You can top with another whole slice of cheese if wanted or use a second slice of bread for a pick-up sandwich, but this will change the listed nutritional values). Brown bottom of bread with cooking spray or small amount of olive oil in a pan. Put in 350 oven until cheese is melted. Eat w/salad, carrot sticks or side of your choice.
