3 Ingredient Tuna Salad

The Easiest Tuna Salad

A 3 ingredient Tuna salad recipe? There couldn’t be an easier to make Keto tuna salad. I grew up eating Tuna salad and I shared my mom’s Tuna salad recipe a while ago. I did however edit it a bit to take it to the next level and make it a bit more Keto friendly.  This recipe was part of my 3 Ingredient Keto Meal Plan. Enjoy!

Building Your Salad

This recipe is the base. It’s more about elements. Meat – Fat – Vegetable. You can swap out the tuna for almost any canned meat. If you have more time you can always buy fresh meat and just give it a quick pan sear. You want to obviously stick to leaner cuts which you can pan fry. So think chicken breast, salmon, sirloin steak etc. There are Keto mayo brands available in the supermarket but you can always make your own mayo at home if you have eggs and oil. I have 2 Keto mayo recipes. The cabbage can be replaced by lettuce or kale. Frankly throw in your fav veggies and take this up a notch.

Btw my secret ingredient in a Tuna salad is boiled eggs!

  1. Hi Sahil,
    So far the only tuna that I could see in the market is a tinned tuna.. and they are tuna chunks… are you also using canned/tinned tuna ?
