The unofficial start to summer is already next month! Lifeguards will be on duty, cookouts will be a regular occasion, and lighter meals will be a must. Today, I wanted to share this tasty and easy recipe for these yummy Tuna Melt Crostini bites.
They are made with Chicken of the Sea® Chunk Light Tuna which you can find nationwide. Paired with some fresh veggies and they are the perfect marriage of fresh flavor.
I love Chicken of the Sea tuna fish and flavored salmon punches which I often turn to it for quick meals. They are also very nutritious and align well with my current lifestyle. These Tuna Melt Crostini are not only perfect for quick meals, but they are also great as appetizers.
We all know the summer is all about friends, family, and good food. You can even make the tuna salad portion ahead of time to make assembly and baking a breeze.
Did you know that World Tuna Day is May 2nd? Chicken of the Sea is celebrating by creating an “Official World Tuna Day Menu” which you all can view on their website during that time period.
