Here’s our updated version of the classic—and great proof that you can have your, well, melt and eat it, too, even if you’re building a healthy lifestyle. How about a tossed green salad on the side?
4 slices  whole-wheat bread
2 6-ounce cans  chunk light tuna (see Ingredient note), drained
1   medium shallot, minced (2 tablespoons)
2 tablespoons  reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon  lemon juice juice
1 tablespoon  minced flat-leaf parsley
1/8 teaspoon  salt
Dash of  hot sauce, such as
Freshly ground pepper to taste
2   tomatoes, sliced
1/2 cup  shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Ingredient Note:  Canned white tuna comes from the large albacore and can be high in mercury content. Chunk light, on the other hand, which comes from smaller fish, skipjack or yellowfin, is best for health-conscious eaters. According to a recent study, canned white tuna samples averaged about 315 percent more mercury than chunk light tuna samples.
