Add crunch to your lunch! Serve carrot and celery sticks plus veggie chips with these yummy sandwiches.

Ingredients

  • 1 can (6 oz) water-packed white tuna, drained
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons creamy Dijon mustard-mayonnaise spread
  • 2 tablespoons shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese (1/2 oz)
  • 4 slices whole-grain bread

Directions

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill for indirect-heat cooking as directed by manufacturer. Cut 2 (12x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. In small bowl, mix tuna, onion, bell pepper and celery. Stir in mustard-mayonnaise spread and cheese.
  • 2
    Spoon tuna mixture onto 2 bread slices; add remaining bread slices. Place each sandwich on center of foil sheet. Bring up 2 sides of foil over sandwich so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  • 3
    Place packets on grill for indirect cooking. Cover grill; cook 12 to 15 minutes, rotating packets 1/2 turn after 6 minutes, until sandwiches are thoroughly heated. To serve, cut large X across top of each packet; carefully fold back foil to allow steam to escape.

  • These foil-wrapped sandwiches are grilled over indirect heat because using direct heat can cause the bread to burn quickly inside the foil.
