Keto Avocado Tuna Salad Lunch Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Looking for a fatty recipe? This Keto Avocado Tuna Salad will blow your mind!

Keto Avocado Tuna Salad

Tuna salads are a great way to insert additional fat into your keto or low-carb diet. I have been experimenting with ways to make my tuna salad recipes a little fattier, and avocados seem to be the perfect way to do that.

Not only does it taste amazing, but avocados have so many health benefits.

I chose to eat this salad in a bowl instead of using lettuce, which is what I normally do. I had added veggies to it, so I figured I would skip the lettuce today.

Of course, you can still serve it on lettuce if you prefer.

Low-Carb Avocado Tuna Salad Lunch Recipe:

I also changed things up a bit by purchasing tuna in oil, which I never do.

This all goes back to my fear of fats from childhood.

My mom always purchased tuna in oil when I was a kid, and once I was indoctrinated with the “fats are bad” mantra in school I made sure never to do the same.

I can say I was surprised to find that it actually tastes better when soaked in oil… who knew?!
