Keto Tuna Salad
This Keto Tuna Salad is the perfect low carb lunch! This recipe is quick, easy, requires no cooking and is naturally low carb. You can enjoy a generous serving for only 1.8 net carbs! Tuna Salad is one of those nostalgic meals that comes together in a flash but is always still so perfectly delicious. This Keto Tuna Salad is a low carb twist on a classic! Tuna is a great option because it is naturally low calorie, low carb and full of protein- it also tends to be inexpensive, which is always a bonus!
I made this Keto Tuna Salad with a bit of a twist- I added a variety of herbs to give this salad a ton of flavor! This Tuna Salad is made with the more traditional veggies- celery and red onion- and then we add the seasoning! I love the unique flavor of this tuna- it’s got more of an Italian blend of herbs. It really compliments the fish and vegetables perfectly and makes for a meal that has a great depth of flavor but is still super simple.
