Tartar sauce is made of mayonnaise, pickles, and seasonings. It is delicious paired with mild canned tuna and Swiss cheese in these quick and easy sandwiches.
- 4 pita breads, unsplit
- 4 slices Swiss cheese
- 1 avocado
- 1 6-ounce can tuna, drained
- ½ cup tartar sauce
- ¾ cup shredded Swiss cheese, divided
- ½ teaspoon dried dill weed
Preheat oven to 400°F. Toast pita breads in oven until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and top each one with a slice of Swiss cheese.
Peel avocado and mash slightly, leaving some chunks. Spread this on top of the Swiss cheese.
In small bowl, combine tuna and tartar sauce with ¼ cup shredded Swiss cheese. Spread on top of avocado.
Sprinkle sandwiches with remaining shredded Swiss cheese and the dill weed. Bake for 7 to 11 minutes, until cheese melts.
Melts are open-faced sandwiches, or sandwiches without a “lid,” that are usually grilled, baked, or broiled to heat the filling and melt the cheese. Serve them with a knife and fork, and with a simple fruit salad or green salad for a hearty, quick lunch or dinner.
