  • 1 (8-oz.) can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onions
  • 4 slices whole wheat bread, toasted
  • 4 (1-oz.) slices American or Cheddar cheese, halved

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, combine tuna, pineapple, celery, mayonnaise and onions; mix well. Spread on toasted bread slices. Top each with 2 pieces of cheese.
  • 2
    Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for about 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Crushed pineapple is the secret ingredient in these tuna sandwiches, providing sweetness, tang and moisture.
  • tip 2
    To reduce the fat in each sandwich by about 19 grams use fat-free mayonnaise and reduced-fat mayonnaise and reduced-fat American cheese in place of the regular products. This lighter sandwich has about 160 fewer calories than the original recipe.
  • tip 3
    Serve these sandwiches with raw vegetables such as baby-cut carrots, celery, bell pepper strips and cherry tomatoes; complete the menu with corn chips and frosty mugs of root beer.
