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.
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.
