Preparation

Blend together Tuna, celery, Scallions, and relish. Blend the lemon juice into the yogurt and add to the tuna mixture. Season to taste with salt & pepper.

Spread 1/4 of the mixture on each slice of toast. Top with 1/2 slice of cheese and pop it under the broiler (on in the toaster oven) just long enough to melt the cheese.

Garnish with a tomato slice, lightly sprinkled with pepper.

The creaminess of the yogurt combined with the tang of the lemon makes a low fat replacement for the traditional mayo used in tuna salad.
