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.
