Low-Carb, High-Fat Tuna Salad

Tired of cooking? Want something that’s incredibly quick and easy to make, full of nutrition, and damned tasty to boot? Try this super simple tuna salad.



2 6 oz. cans wild-caught tuna
2 tomatoes, diced
1 avocado, diced
4-6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 lime
Salt and pepper to taste

Drain the tuna and place in a bowl. Using a fork, shred the tuna as finely as you can. Next, add the olive oil, tomato, avocado, and salt and pepper, and mix everything together. Use as much or as little olive oil as you like. Divide the mixture onto two plates and squeeze the juice of half a lime over each salad.

For a little variety, try the same recipe, substituting wild caught canned salmon for the tuna.

Serves 2.

    I love tuna and this looks divine. Thanks for suggesting wild caught tuna or salmon and not farm raised.


  2. Love eating tuna this way. Also love the “eat meat, not wheat” tag. So awesome.
