Tuna Apple Melt


1 (12-ounce) can solid white tuna in water, drained and flaked
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 red apple, cored and diced
1 celery stalk, diced
2 tablespoons canned whole-berry cranberry sauce
1 tablespoon butter, softened
4 ½-inch-thick slices sourdough bread
4 slices Provolone or Muenster cheese
Celery Sticks, optional


In large bowl combine tuna, mayonnaise and Dijon mustard until well blended; stir in apple, celery and cranberry sauce.

Spread one side of bread with butter. In 12-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat, place bread slices, butter-side down. Top each with a slice of cheese. Cover and cook over medium heat, 3-4 minutes until cheese is melted and bottom of bread is golden.

Remove bread to plate; top each piece with some tuna mixture. Serve warm. Serve with celery sticks if desired.
