    • Thank you! Yes, me too! I wasnt sure if the tuna salad would taste sour with the greek yogurt instead of mayo but was pleasantly surprised!

  1. Oooooh this is brilliant. So simple, yet elegant. I just “learned” how to roast a pepper the other week, and have been craving good old tuna recently. So I’m loving this idea!

  2. Yum, I love a good tuna melt! This recipe is perfect for a week night. Sometimes when I make stuffed peppers I will nuke the peppers in the microwave for a few minutes to soften them, which helps save even more time. I never had added tuna before though! So good.
