Keto Tuna Salad

This keto tuna salad recipe is ready in five minutes and tastes fantastic!

Tuna is a fish that we really love in our house. It is one of the main ingredients in the quick and easy meals that we often eat when we want a quick and tasty meal.

The advantage of using tuna is that it can be bought in tins (normally in brine or in oil) and can be kept in the larder.

keto ingredients

This recipe is very simple and quick to make and can be eaten as a healthy keto dish. It can also be a delicious non-keto snack – you can eat it with crackers for example in a tuna sandwich, for example.

But these days anyone looking for an easy keto meal or a keto salad should try this recipe.

keto ingredients mixed

It is delicious and fulfilling. Perhaps even a perfect meal as an easy keto lunch.

We often make this recipe as keto hors d’oeuvres before meals with guests.

But for those of you looking for a keto tuna recipe look no further. This is cheap and easy to prepare and will stay on your menu.

Sustainable tuna

Make sure when you choose your tuna that it is from sustainable sources. Some tuna is more plentiful than others these days.

Due to some of the climate changes ongoing it is even possible to fish for bluefin tuna on the West coast of Ireland these days.

However, it is heavily regulated and it can only be fished from authorised charter boats. I believe all the caught fish are put back into the sea.

This is an easy tuna salad that is ready in 5 minutes and will satisfy, especially if you are still feeling hungry during a keto diet.

The Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise is the trick to making it special (I do use a lot of Hellmann’s in the recipes on my site!).
