  • 3 ounces reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, grated
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


1. Preheat broiler.

2. Combine tuna, celery, onion and salad dressing. Season with salt and pepper.

Round out this lunch with an apple and a side salad. Use spinach or kale, add a few cherry tomatoes and mix lightly with low fat Russian or Thousand Island dressing used in the tuna melt. Voila, lunch is served!
