This Mediterranean tuna salad is for anyone that doesn’t like mayo. This keto tuna salad without mayo has a tangy Greek dressing you’ll love!
Mediterranean Tuna Salad
This is a colorful salad with tons of nutrition and the best part about it is that it actually tastes amazing too! You can see all the healthy ingredients and they each add a unique flavor to this simple salad.
It’s a budget-friendly keto lunch idea. You can feed your entire family for just a few bucks. Canned tuna is incredibly affordable. The most expensive ingredient in this salad is probably the olives – and those are optional.
Mediterranean Tuna Antipasto Salad
I used to think antipasto meant “no pasta.” Nope! It’s Italian for appetizer. This salad is the perfect antipasto dish. Tuna is a very light fish and if you serve a small portion, it leaves plenty of room for the main meal.
Since there are just 4 grams net carbs in each serving, I don’t mind making this my main lunch. The fiber from the onion, bell pepper, and cucumbers will fill you up and keep your blood sugar nice and level at the same time.
Keto Mediterranean Tuna Salad
This is such a simple salad to make that I prefer to make just as much as I will eat in on sitting. I don’t make enough to have leftovers.
If you have leftover salad, store it in an airtight food storage container in the refrigerator for up to three days. After three days, the veggies will start to soak up the juice from the tuna and it won’t be as appetizing.
Tuna Salad No Mayo
If you (or your kiddos) look at mayo and think, “nope” then this salad is for you! The flaky tuna and crispy veggies are topped with olive oil, lemon juice, and sprinkled with Greek seasoning.
You can use these three things together on other salads too! I love this combination on top of chopped spinach, kale, cucumbers, and banana peppers.
Kid-Friendly Tuna Salad
One of the best ways to encourage kids to enjoy eating salads is to ask them to prepare the salad with you. This recipe is so easy that you can let your kiddos help you put it together.
Let them taste each veggie and ingredient before they add it to the salad. This way, they will know that the salad has all of their favorite things in it.
