Tuna Melt - Sans Onions

Tuna melt is a classic lunch (or dinner) that can be made dozens of ways. I think everyone has their own take on this sandwich and that's what is so unique about it. No one makes a tuna melt like your Mother and eating one will take you back to childhood.

I have a thing about tuna melts, and that is I don't like onions in them. I love cooked onions. Raw? Hmmmmm not so much. And if I can be real, I think the raw onion in a tuna melt ruins it. Yep I said it! Those true to onion in their tuna can move along if you wish but try this version out and see if you really miss it.

My secret to making this tuna melt poppin' is to pour about 1 Tbsp of the pickle juice in the mixture. Making sure to use sweet pickles, it makes the recipe.

Okay, I can't really think of anything else to say about tuna so here, we go....

Topped this with Pepper Jack Cheese and a little arugula

That's a second piece, with Sriracha.
