Light & Sassy Salsa Tuna Melt Recipe
If there is one kind of food I can never see myself giving up, it’s cheese. If I had my way, I would put cheese on just about everything… sandwiches, hamburger, baked potatoes, pasta, crackers, pie. I don’t care what it is, it’s better with cheese. Unfortunately, when I add cheese to everything, I’m also adding extra fat and calories that I don’t really want. There’s no way that I am going to be giving up cheese any time soon though. Sargento has a new Ultra Thin sliced cheese that has only 40-45 calories per slice! I can have three slices in one serving. I can really enjoy my sandwiches now instead of feeling like I have to eat them without cheese to save on calories and fat.
Sargento Ultra Thin Sliced Cheese is available in Colby-Jack, Mild Cheddar, Swiss and Provolone varieties. Each re-sealable package contains 20 slices of cheese. Each is separated by a piece of paper to make removal easy. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the Ultra Thin Sliced Cheese. I’m very particular about the type of cheese that I use. I have used some cheese in the past that don’t melt properly and I really hate when that happens. I tried out the Sargento Ultra Thin Sliced Colby-Jack Cheese and it melted perfectly at exactly the right time. I made the Light & Sassy Salsa Tuna Melt recipe I found on the Sargento site except I substituted the Sargento Ultra Thin Sliced Colby-Jack Cheese for the traditional cheese.
