Don’t freak out! I know I’m posting an easy keto tuna salad recipe, but this doesn’t mean I’ve run out of recipe ideas or gone off my rocker! You probably know how to make keto tuna salad, but since I have it coming up a new meal plan I’m working on, I wanted it here as an easy reference with nutrition information included.
Not that you can’t figure out how to make a low carb tuna salad on your own – and probably do already, but I will say that my easy keto tuna salad recipe is pretty delicious though. It’s my son’s favorite, and the secret is in the dried onion flakes. They add a punch of flavor without the harsh sulfur burn of fresh onions that can turn some people off.
If you’re eating it right away, it also adds a little crunch, which we all love!
I’m calling for canned tuna in water, because I’d rather add my own fat in the form of mayonnaise (homemade if you have it – especially if you’re Whole 30) than have it swimming in low quality oil of questionable origin.
That being said, if you can get some decent tuna in olive oil or another good quality oil then that’s ok too, but you should probably calculate your own nutrition info since the fat and calories will likely be higher than in this easy keto tuna salad recipe.
This recipe calls for salt and pepper to taste because some tuna fish is saltier out of the can than others. I recommend mixing it without salt and pepper, tasting it and then adding what you think you’ll need at that point.
Look for a new addition to my free weekly keto meal plans featuring this easy keto tuna salad coming soon!
