Directions:

  1. Place the tuna, celery, onion, mayonnaise, relish, and pepper in a small bowl, and stir to mix well. Set aside.
  2. Toast the English muffins, and arrange on a baking sheet, split side up. Spread about 1/4 cup of the tuna mixture on each piece, and place under a preheated broiler for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the mixture is hot. Top each muffin half with 2 tablespoons of the cheese, and broil for another minute or 2, or until the cheese is melted. Serve hot.
