Ingredients:

  • 1 pouch (43 oz.) StarKist® Chunk Light Tuna in Water
  • 20 whole grain, 6x6 flatbread
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 5 oz. raw, diced red onion
  • ¼ cup chopped, fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup nonfat, plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 lb., 4 oz. shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Directions:

  • Thaw the flatbread overnight at room temperature.
  • Line a sheet pan with parchment paper, and spray with pan release.
  • Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  • In a large bowl, prepare the brine by stirring together the sugar, white vinegar and water until the sugar dissolves. Cover and set aside.
  • Rinse the onions under running water. Drain well in a colander.
  • Cut the onions in half, then dice them into ½-inch pieces.
  • Mix the onions into the brine. To marinate, cover and refrigerate until needed. This may be prepared a day in advance.
  • Rinse the cilantro under running water, and drain it in a colander. Further dry it with paper towel.
  • Cut away the thick stems of the cilantro bunch, then finely chop. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Combine the mayonnaise, yogurt, rice vinegar, honey, cayenne pepper and red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Add the tuna, and using fresh gloves, crumble it into small pieces. Mix gently until all of the ingredients are combined.
  • Place 8 flatbreads on a full-size sheet pan. Top each flatbread with 2 oz. of the tuna mixture; spread it to cover the top of the flatbread. Top with 1 oz. of the cheese.
  • Bake at 400° F for 7–8 minutes. Remove the flatbreads from the oven, and top with 1 Tbsp. of the drained pickled onion. Sprinkle ~½ tsp. of chopped cilantro on top of each flatbread to garnish.
