Some of your questions answered

We have answers to some questions that you may have. If we missed any, feel free to leave your questions in the comment section below.

Is tuna salad healthy

All ingredients used in making this keto tuna salad are all clean and healthy. We even skipped out on the mayo and made it using greek yogurt instead. Mayo is completely fine for those who are on a keto diet and of course everything in moderation. This tuna salad recipe is healthy and low in carbs.

Is mayo keto

Mayo is high in fat and calories, low in carbs and thus makes it ideal for those on keto. Mayo adds a whole lot more calories to your meal so if you want to keep your meal high in protein and low calories you may use yogurt in place of the mayo. But mayo is perfectly fine for those on keto.

How long does tuna salad last in the fridge

Properly stored tuna salad will last for 3-5 days in the fridge. Make sure you store in a tightly sealed container and do not leave out for long. Serve in lettuce wraps when ready to eat to prevent them from wilting.

Can you freeze tuna salad

Tuna on its own freezes well. If making this keto tuna salad with mayo we don’t recommend freezing since mayo doesn’t freeze well. Since our tuna salad is made with greek yogurt they are perfectly fine to freeze for later use for up to 3 months. Store in ziplock bags or place in a tightly seals container before freezing. Allow your tuna salad to thaw in the fridge overnight before serving.
