“Best We’ve Ever Had” Keto Tuna Salad Recipe

This is one of my "go to" keto lunches and it is so easy it could almost be classified as Lazy Keto. For a five-minute lunch, chop the veggies and herbs in advance and then assemble it fresh each time. Enjoy it with or without the wrap.

  • In a large bowl, break up the tuna with a fork. Do this first, as it makes incorporating the other ingredients easier.
  • Add mayonnaise, red onion, green onion, mint, basil, cilantro, parsley, lemon juice, and red wine vinegar.
  • Mix well with a fork to combine all ingredients.
  • Add cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper to taste.  Mix again and taste, adding more seasoning if desired.
  • See notes below for serving suggestions.


SERVING SUGGESTIONS:  Eat straight out of the bowl or serve in a low carb wrap (we chose La Tortilla Factory tortillas at only 3g net carbs).  Or serve in romaine or butter lettuce leaves which add only an insignificant amount of calories and net carbs.
NUTRITION NOTE:  Since serving preferences vary, nutrition information below was calculated for the tuna salad only.  Also note, the nutrition information is calculated using tuna packed in water.  If you choose to use tuna packed in oil, please adjust the nutrition accordingly.
