You’ll only need a few simple ingredients to make this tasty lunch (exact measurements are included in the recipe card below):
  1. Water-Packed canned tuna

  • Mayonnaise


  • Dijon mustard


  • Hot sauce


  • Minced garlic


  • Kosher salt and black pepper


  • Chopped cilantro or parsley



  • If you don’t have fresh parsley or cilantro you can use dried herbs instead – try 1/2 teaspoon. Same goes for garlic – garlic powder is fine.

    How to make keto tuna

    salad
    It’s so easy! Scroll down to the recipe card for the detailed instructions. Here are the basic steps:
    1. Drain the tuna

    , place in a bowl, and flake with a fork.

  • Add the remaining ingredients and mix to combine.


  • Serve on toasted keto bread or in a lettuce wrap.
  • Why I use avocado oil mayo

    I use avocado oil mayonnaise (Sir Kensington’s brand, available at Whole Foods and Walmart, is wonderful) in this recipe.

    I believe that avocado oil is a healthier choice than refined, bleached, and deodorized oils (RBD oils). Most commercial mayonnaise products are made with soybean oil, so I try to avoid them.

    Since I use water-packed tuna
    in this healthy tuna salad recipe, I add quite a bit of mayo – 3 tablespoons. Otherwise, it’s too dry.
    But oil-packed tuna
    is usually packed in – you guessed it – soybean oil. So it’s best to use water-packed tuna.
    In the past, before avocado oil mayonnaise became readily available, I used sour cream instead of mayonnaise. That was delicious too.
