Updated on February 28, 2020

Join me on my keto journey as I share relevant information, my personal health and weight loss update, and amazing recipes.


This recipe was created for those on the keto way of eating; however, it is very healthy and can be enjoyed by anyone, no matter what kind of eating plan you follow. This salad includes all of the macro nutrients needed for one meal. My husband and I do intermittent fasting and eat one or two meals every day. This recipe is designed for two people; however, you can cut it in half when fixing it for just yourself.

I always try to use organically grown and pasture-raised foods when I create my recipes. It assures me that I am getting the highest nutrients possible for my body as well as the amazing flavors and aromas that are out of this world!

My recipes:

  • Are richer in flavor

  • Include healthy, whole, organic foods

  • Allow me to know exactly what I am consuming

It is not necessary to use organic foods, such as eggs. The items I use are from my personal favorites list; however, I encourage you to use what you have or prefer.

Note: The ingredients for this recipe are favorites of mine; however, you can add or omit any ingredient to make it your own "perfect tuna salad for two."

I always use Primal Kitchen products with my keto and non-keto recipes. I can always be sure that I am getting the necessary macro nutrients I need for my recipes. The mayonnaise is so creamy and good. It is gluten free, sugar free, dairy free, and soy and canola-oil free. Primal Kitchen mayonnaise was mixed with the tuna in this recipe. The flavors took the tuna mix to a whole other level. Primal Kitchen Mayo is a pure and nutritious blend of avocado oil, organic, cage-free eggs, organic herbs, organic spices and organic vinegar from non-gmo beets.
