Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 2 servings


  • 1 can Chicken of the Sea E-Z Open Solid White Albacore Tuna
  • ¼ cup salsa
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt or mayonnaise
  • salt & pepper
  • 1-2 large pita I use gluten-free pita
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese


  • Turn the oven onto the broiler setting. Toast the pita on one side for 1-2 minutes until golden and slightly crisp. Remove from the oven and flip.
  • Open the tuna can and squeeze to drain all the liquid. Add the salsa and greek yogurt and salt and pepper to taste. Mix with a fork until combined.
  • Spread the tuna mixture over the pita into an even layer. Top with the shredded cheese. Broil for 5-7 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and everything is hot. (This time will depend on how hot your broiler is so watch carefully.) Let cool slightly then slice and enjoy!


*I use the brand My Bread for the gluten-free pita that I find in the frozen section of Whole Foods but any pita, English muffin or even bread will work!
I usually make this recipe with tuna, but it could work well with EZ-Open Skinless & Boneless Pink Salmon as well!
