I got the original recipe from Snack Girl at http://www.snack-girl.com/snack/light-tuna

Number of Servings: 2


    1 can (142 grams/5 oz) tuna in water
    12 grams mayonaisse (1 Tbsp)
    2 grams yellow mustard (.25 tsp)
    9 grams sun dried tomatoes (.5 Tbsp)
    20 grams celery, chopped (2 Tbsp)
    1 medium red bell pepper
    2 slices Sargento Ultra Thin Colby Jack Cheese


I can't use all the celery that the grocers sells me before it spoils so I hit the salad bar & dish out celery for recipes just like this one!


Preheat broiler. I set mine at 475 degrees.

Halve, core, & remove seeds from the bell pepper. Chop celery & sun dried tomatoes. Mix 1st five ingredients (tuna, mayo, mustard, tomatoes, & celery). Divide evenly among the 2 pepper halves (about 68 grams of tuna salad per half).

Tear cheese to fit over tuna salad. Place on foil lined pan & broil a minimum of 6 or more inches from the heat source until the cheese is bubbly (1-2 minutes) & then turn off the heat & let warm in the oven.

Remove & serve.
