2 tablespoons finely diced green onion
2 tablespoons diced jalapeno
1 tablespoon mayo
1 tablespoon yogurt (or substitute mayo)
1 teaspoon grainy dijon mustard
1 teaspoon hot sauce
Freshly ground salt and pepper, to taste
2 slices your favorite bread
2 slices sharp cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese)
Extra jalapeno slices, if desired

In a medium bowl, mix together drained tuna, diced green onion, diced jalapeno, mayo, yogurt, dijon, hot sauce, and salt and pepper.

Toast the bread, then evenly spread the tuna mixture over each slice. Top each with a slice of cheese. Top with extra jalapeno slices, if desired. Place under the broiler for 2 minutes* or until the cheese is melted. Enjoy!
