A Saveur recipe for tuna melts that will get you drooling

Image by Flickr user cafemama The main ingredient: tasty tuna.

In the 2010 Saveur 100 List that featured the Glass Onion's awesome fries, it more quietly featured another tasty tribute to Charleston: A recreation of the tuna melt at the Woolworth's lunch counter.

Warren Bobrow, now of New Jersey, writes in part: "I'll never forget the tuna melt I used to have at the Woolworth's lunch counter on King Street in Charleston, South Carolina: buttered white bread, browned to a crisp on a flattop grill; freshly made tuna salad dotted with diced celery and Georgia sweet onions; American cheese melting out the sides of the sandwich; and a side of Lay's potato chips and slices of bread-and-butter pickles."

Mmmm, tasty.

And it gets better. Not only can you check out the full piece and a photo over here, but you can get the easy recipe over here.

Once again I say: tasty.
