The tuna melt is a diner classic, but we decided to take it to the next level by combining our Grown-Up Tuna Salad with Gruyère cheese and garlic toast.
What to buy:
Be sure to use a good-quality cheese for this recipe. Avoid buying the pre-grated kind: It won’t give much flavor. If you don’t like Gruyère, an aged cheddar is a good substitute.

Beverage pairing: Trumer Pils, California. A beer is always a good match with a tuna melt, and this one has just a touch of hoppy florality to make things interesting. It also has a lot of malty semisweetness that will go wonderfully with the nutty Gruyère.
