Black Bean Tuna Melts


1 (15 0z) can black beans, drained & rinsed

2 (5 oz) cans of tuna in water, drained

1/2 white onion, diced

1/2 tsp dry dill

2 dashes of hot sauce

1/2-1 cup of shredded colby-jack cheese

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

salt & pepper to taste

*sliced rye bread*

*butter or margarine*

* Combine rinsed black beans, drained tuna, diced onion, dry dill, hot sauce, shredded cheese, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt & pepper in a mixing bowl with a fork.

* Heat griddle or grill to medium heat, and prepare sliced rye bread with butter or margarine for grilling.

* Place one slice of rye bread, butter side down, on griddle.

* Top with tuna mixture.

* Cover with a second slice of rye bread, butter side up.

* Cook on both sides until golden brown, about a minute on each side.

Hint: My husband and one of my sons added an additional slice of American cheese on to their sandwiches as I was loading our griddle. Big success at our house! A great alternative to traditional salad dressing with salad dressing or mayo.
