Tuna Melt Canapés

I love tuna sandwiches for lunch.
But a tuna melt, was never my thing.

This odd sounding recipe jazzes up the retro tuna melt. It is perfect to serve for a luncheon (if you are the type who has "luncheons").

These were not only good, they were EXCELLENT! I used ginger preserves, because I was out of Major Grey's chutney, and everyone loved them.

They were sweet and spicy and everything nicey.

Tuna Melt Canapés (adapted from Saveur):

2–3 tbsp. mayonnaise
1 1/2 tbsp golden raisins
1 tbsp mango chutney, chopped (I used Dundee Ginger preserves)
1/2 tsp curry powder
1 5-oz. can oil or water-packed tuna, drained
4 slices of white or wheat bread, crusts removed and cut in half on the angle
8 thin, square slices of farmhouse cheddar cheese
fresh chives, optional

Mix the tuna with the mayo, raisins, chutney and curry powder in a bowl.

Spread the tuna mixture on little bread triangles and lay a slice of cheese on top.

Broil for a few minutes until cheese is melted and garnish with fresh chives.

I love the chutney and raisins. I would never have thought to combine them with tuna. Can't wait to try this recipe.

Fit for a royal luncheon starring Kate and Wills! Do coax the Duchess to have seconds - her extreme willowy-ness is worrisome. The Dundee preserves endorsed by HM The Queen I'm sure!

Sounds delish. I have made chicken salad with Best Foods (Hellman's) good mayonnaise, mango chutney and sultanas (golden raisins), but never tried it with tuna.

This sounds like a winner.

Last comment about chicken salad should have included curry powder as well. Very good.
