Hi! I created Ketology after struggling for years with hormonal changes and weight gain. As I got older, I found managing my weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. Within 3 months of switching to a ketogenic lifestyle tailored for my age, I not only shed 30 pounds of stubborn fat, but my mood improved, my focus sharpened and I have had nothing but positive effects! Learn more about my journey here.

Tuna salad has always been a favorite – atop of bed of lettuce, in keto-friendly wraps or wrapped in romaine lettuce or cabbage leaves, stuffed in an avocado half…and there are so many basic and fancy ways to make a delicious keto tuna salad that’s filling and satisfying. I make a whole range of keto tuna salads – sometimes a classic with pickles (I prefer slicing up cornichons) or sometimes with a Middle Eastern vibe with cumin. Either way, with the right balance of creamy mayo and flavorings, tuna salad is a great option when following a keto lifestyle.

How To Eat Keto Tuna Salad

So first, while I have heard about the infamous Aldi Keto Bread, we don’t have Aldi markets around us so I haven’t been able to try it. However, if you want a delicious, keto bread to go with your keto tuna salad, this recipe is the best keto bread EVER. Ever.

I have already talked about my love of Cut Da Carb wraps, so I often roll my tuna salad in one of those bad boys and am good to go, but I also love stuffing half of an avocado with the tuna salad — the balance of creaminess of mayo with the smooth avocado texture is just heaven. And, provides even more healthy fats!

I also had a long-time obsession with OhMyKeto’s keto crisp which is PERFECT for tuna melts, so if you want an ooey-gooey tuna melt – definitely check out her recipe.

Now for my Tuna Recipe. I keep it simple and love the Safe Catch brand that I get at Costco. Enjoy!!
