I could probably eat a tuna melt for lunch every day. It’s so satisfying (chock full of protein!) and keeps me full and energized for the rest of the day. I like to add Straus Family Creamery Organic Greek Yogurt to my tuna salad because it’s thick, creamy, and so delicious. I like to keep a tub of Straus Organic Greek Yogurt in my fridge at all times because it’s so versatile—perfect for anything like this tuna melt to baked goods to salad dressings to yogurt bowls. 

Tuna Melt with Straus Family Creamery Organic Greek Yogurt

Prep Time

Cook Time
10 minutes
Total Time
25 minutes



1 can tuna, drained and flaked

1/3 cup Straus Family Creamery Organic Whole Plain Greek Yogurt, plus more for spreading

1 stalk celery, finely chopped

3 tablespoons finely chopped red onion

1 baby dill pickle, finely chopped plus 1 teaspoon pickling liquid

2 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste

2 slices sourdough bread

2 tomato slices

2 slices cheddar cheese

Olive oil, for cooking


In a medium bowl, mix tuna, organic Greek yogurt, celery, red onion, pickles, dill, and mustard. Season with salt, pepper, and 1 teaspoon of pickling liquid.

Spread both slices of sourdough with a spoonful of yogurt. On one half, add 1 slice cheese (to the yogurt side of bread), tuna mixture, tomato slices, and another slice of cheese. Top with remaining slice of bread, yogurt side on the inside of the sandwich.

Heat a thin layer of oil in a cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sandwich and cook until bread is golden brown on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board. Slice in half and serve immediately.
