    This was a good quick and easy weekday dinner and even my finicky teen who "hates" fish, ate it up. Next time I'll cut back on the olive oil by a tablespoon. It just seemed a bit heavily dressed to my taste and that will help cut back on the fat and calories too.

    I will be making this again and again. Great one to have on hand when you are in a hurry and need a meal quick. Super easy! The only revision I made was I used a slice of light provolone cheese on each piece of bread in place of the swiss cheese and happend to have french sandwich rolls on hand so I cut each in 1/2 and it was delicious!

    Great, but I think it was more like two servings, not four.

    This was really tasty! A tad high in points at 12, but it was good. I had some issues with how the recipe was written, though. "2 (6 ounce) pieces French bread." Is that 12 oz. total, or 6 oz. total? I went with 6. Should just read, "6 ounces French bread..." "1 (6 ounce) can..tuna." They only sell 5 or 12 oz. cans now. I bought a 12 oz. can and weighed out the proper portion. "...broil for 3 minutes or until cheese is bubbly." It only took about 1 minute before the bread started burning. Not really enough cheese involved to call it "bubbly".

    I was amazed at the flavors that came together when I made this recipe for dinner tonight, I wanted to try something healthy and light this was awesome and now will be added to my own favorites section in my cook book binder. Instead of Swiss I used Boars Head Sharp Cheddar.

    Agreed, this was fabulous. Used my home-made whole wheat rolls, regular tomato, and sliced instead of shredded cheese. Also cut oil to 1 T. A little tabasco on top after broiling and DELISH!

    Great recipe and husband approved! I doubled all of the ingredients so that the sandwiches could be a little fuller and there would be extra for leftovers. Helpful tip: If you pull out some of the inside of the bread, you can save on calories .

    So tasty, simple, and fast to put together! The shallots and dijon mustard paired with the avocado is delicious and the portion size is very filling. I will definitely be making this a staple in my house, served with a small salad on the side.

    We've made this many times, and as we have found with most CL recipes, adjustments were needed. So that we have some for lunches the next day, we double the oil and avocado, and then triple everything else. We don't use cherry tomatoes, instead we slice a couple of big ones and top the tuna mixture with them, and then add the cheese. A few minutes under the broiler (skipping the shredded cheese on the bread) and it is tuna melt perfection!
