Number of Servings: 1


    1 dash fresh ground black pepper
    1 oz lemon juice
    1/4 cup chopped celery
    1/4 cup finely chopped onion
    1 slice cheese (Veggie Slices or fat free cheese)
    2 slices rye bread or multigrain bread
    1 tsp yellow mustard
    1 Tbsp light mayonnaise
    1 can StarKist Chunk Light Tuna in water(5 oz)
    1 dash celery salt
    1/4 tsp dill weed
    5 sprays butter spray (on each piece of bread)


Drain water from tuna

Combine celery, onion, mustard, lemon juice, pepper, celery salt, dill and tuna in a mixing bowl. Mix together well.

Spray one side of each slice of bread with butter spray and lightly toast bread.

Scoop tuna mixture onto toasted bread (non buttered side)

Place slice of cheese on tuna mixture, close up and enjoy !

I find if you chill the tuna mixture for a bit before you make the sandwich it thickens up the mixture and adds a cool crispiness to the sandwich.
