Open Faced Tuna Melt

Open Faced Tuna Melt is a variation on the classic sandwich that tastes just as great but is a lot healthier. The recipe, inspired by Hungry Girl, is the perfect solution for those times when you need a meal that is quick but also satisfying. The dry broccoli slaw adds the perfect crunch without the extra hassle of having to cut vegetables. You can find broccoli slaw in the refrigerated produce section of most supermarkets.
