This Keto Avocado Tuna Salad is super delicious, quick and easy to make and has become a staple in my house as one of my favorite recipes for lunch almost every single week. What I love the most about this recipe is the creaminess of the avocado without having to add any mayonnaise.

Avocados with leaves on a white backgroundThere was a time when you couldn’t get me to to even look at an avocado let alone eat one. And yet now I am constantly coming up with a variety of ways  where I can use it as part of my ketogenic lifestyle. The avocado is rich in potassium, fiber, powerful antioxidants and heart-healthy fats. 

My choice of tuna for this salad is a solid white albacore in water but if you prefer chunk light tuna in oil or water you can use that too. The avocado is the #1 ingredient in this recipe and should be soft and ripe to add that creamy texture to it. 

You can start with the basic recipe below but can you can also add in  in other ingredients like hard boiled eggs, olives, bell pepper, crumbled bacon,walnuts, slivered almonds, tomatoes, cheese or whatever you like. The same can be said for the seasonings too. I often add a little balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, lime juice and occasionally will add some turmeric, Italian seasonings or paprika. 

However you decide to serve this avocado tuna salad I have no doubt you’ll find yourself making it a regular basis. That’s just how good it is!!
