Swiss Tuna Melts

We like Swiss tuna melts served with homemade vegetable soup. You’ll love the crunch that celery gives to the creamy tuna filling.—Karen Owen, Rising Sun, Indiana

    These melts have great consistency when only half of the sour cream and mayo are used.

    very good. but, way too much sour cream and mayo for 1can of tuna. also, added garlic power and dill relish.
