Everyone needs an arsenal of basic recipes in her recipe box. Believe it or not, these basic recipes are helpful and handy for any skill level homecook.

When I first moved out on my own I barely knew how to boil an egg or make sweet tea. I would Google or search Pinterest recipes of everything, even boiled chicken. A recipe for classic (keto) tuna salad might seem silly, but I assure you, it’s far from it!

Tuna salad never gets old either. It’s one of those foods that is just delicious every time I make it (probably because I use this recipe). 😉

Growing up, my mom always put sweet pickles and a spoonful of sugar in our tunafish. I know, right? But, it is the South and sugah is life. 

But as an adult who tries to really limit her sugah intake, I had to come up with an alternate way to make Momma’s tunafish. 

I’ve been making this classic southern style keto tuna salad for years now and am finally giving it a permanent spot here on the blog!

You Put Eggs and Pickles In Your Keto Tuna Salad?

Yessssss girl! Don’t knock it till you try it. Trust me when I say this keto tuna salad is the best you’ll find. 

Adding elements like hard boiled egg and sugar free sweet relish add extra layers of flavor and texture that sets it apart from plain tuna salad.

I mean, is a can of tuna mixed with mayo, salt, and pepper appealing or appetizing? No, it’s not. That’s bland and lackluster. Life is short, you should eat well!

Here are a few of my favorite vessels for dipping and snacking:

  • Low carb bread such as Great Low Carb Bread Company, Sola, etc.
  • Sliced radishes
  • Celery sticks
  • Carrot sticks (don’t even worry about those carbs, they’re carrots)
  • Lettuce cups
  • Low carb tortilla (wrap it up with some lettuce, tomato, and a slice of bacon for a BLTw/ES)
  • Trader Joe’s Crisp Bread (these little low carb “crackers” are worth the drive to your closest TJ’s)
  • Cheese Whisps or similar
  • Crispy bacon strips
  • Rolled up on a slice of ham or turkey
