Keto Tuna Salad

Super delicious non cooked Keto Tuna Salad is an excellent mixture of healthy ingredients to give you that perfect flavor one wishes to experience. Dash of caviar upgrades this Keto salad into a whole different level.

This perfect Keto Tuna Salad was the best invention my daughter came up with. One day she came from school and said she wanted to make her Tuna Spread or Salad. And there she went developing the recipe we are now so grateful for.

It has been used for years since, and I am sure that by sharing it further, some of you might add this to your canning Tuna Recipes collection. 

Tuna Salad Sandwich

Our Keto Tuna Recipe is not only a pure salad. It has got so many great variations you can use it for. 

One of them is a perfect Tuna Salad sandwich, as you can see in the image. Super easy and healthy, plus everyone loves it.

What Keto Bread can you use for Tuna Sandwich?

As you see in the image, I have used our Fiber Bread Rolls.

But you can experiment with Yogurt Chaffles, which are perfect for making sandwiches, Keto Fiber Bread, Protein Buns or Low Carb Buns

You can even use Bell Peppers or Salad Leaves instead of bread to get a perfect Tuna Salad Sandwich. 

Tuna Party Appetizer

Are you planning a party at your house? Or you are invited and need to come up with something delicious but also a tiny bit VIP level upgrade? Our Keto Tuna Recipe with caviar came to the rescue. 

Mix it up and top up your baked zucchinis, slices of cucumber, baby salad leaves. You can even have devilled eggs filled with these beauties.

Calories in Tuna Salad

It depends if you will eat only the tuna salad, add it to your sandwich, or use it as a mini appetizer. 

I have split this recipe into two portions to give you a quick ball view.

One portion, perfect for at least two sandwiches or about ten mini bites, has got a perfect 69 grams of calories. 

How many carbs are in Tuna Salad?

This is excellent news for us following a low-carb or keto lifestyle. Our Healthy Tuna Salad has a perfect 1 gram of carbohydrates per portion.

With its 9 grams of Protein to add to this, we are on the right way for an enjoyable breakfast time.

What Tuna is Best to Use for Salad?

To make a salad with Tuna, it is best and easiest to use canned tuna. I usually buy either tuna in olive oil or water.

Is Canned Tuna Keto Approved?

Tuna is naturally low carb and high in Protein, the best fit for the keto lifestyle. As long as you are buying pure tuna in a can, without any additional ingredients except water or oil, it is perfect to use.

What is Keto Tuna Salad?

Keto Tuna Salad is a perfect mixture of ingredients allowed in the keto lifestyle.

Adding each into the mixture is excellent to get the best of all the nutritions.

Tuna on its own is a perfect source of Protein.

To add to it, we need some fat, cheese in our case, vegetables – cucumber and onion. Caviar with lemon gives us that VIP effect.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

How do you store Tuna Salad?

Simply place it into the mason jar or any glass container with the lid. It will stay in your refrigerator for 3-4 days.

Can you freeze Tuna Salad?

You can undoubtedly freeze Tuna Salad, although I would not suggest it as it does change the structure after defrosting. 

It is still ok, but freshly made tuna salad tastes much better. Make only the amount you know you will consume within 2-3 days. 

Having a fresh tuna and want to try something special? Tuna steak with lemon dijon sauce is worth looking at.
