So you want to make this healthy tuna salad keto?
If you are following the keto diet or need even lower carb, leave out the honey and add cinnamon instead. Alternatively you can serve this avocado tuna salad over greens instead of apples.
Personally, I’m a big fan of that sweet and savory combo so that’s why I gotta have something sweet like the apple slices, honey or tart cherries paired with my savory and salty tuna and avocado.
My mom has become an avocado tuna salad convert but I cannot get Eric to even take a bite. Oh well, MORE FOR US!
True brain food.
How long will tuna salad last in the fridge?
If you are in a pinch and need a quick lunch– keep canned tuna stocked in the pantry to whip up this quick lunch option. It’s a to go at our house. I love the convenience of canned tuna! BUT you can totally meal prep this recipe too.
This healthy tuna salad without mayo will only keep 1-2 days in the fridge, so my recommendation would be to flake up the tuna but to store the almond separately, and add the avocado when ready to eat.
