Keto Tuna Salad

Tuna Fish

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free. So if you follow me then you know I started this diet journey to improve my health. By doing a radical change in my diet my health is improving. Many of my recipes are great for those with allergies. Grain-free means gluten-free but gluten-free does not always mean grain free. Gluten is a protein that is a part of the endosperm in grain.

This is my nod to a Japanese tuna salad. In Japan, they put horseradish into tuna salad and I love it like this. If you like horseradish then you will love horseradish on your tuna salad. I like to use pickle relish as it saves time cutting up pickles. But if you don’t have pickle relish just cut up some pickles. I prefer the taste of dill but you can use sweet or bread and butter. I also like capers as they give it a little more salt. The mustard is again a taste thing. Occasionally I use hot spicy brown mustard in place of yellow mustard or dijon mustard. It’s all about what you prefer. You can eat it as an open-faced sandwich use LaRena’s Crusty European Style Bread or with Grain Free Garlic crackers. I have used it as a dip for vegetables or in lettuce wraps.

 

1 can water packed tuna

4 tablespoons homemade mayo

1 teaspoon mustard

2 teaspoons homemade horseradish

2 teaspoon dill pickle relish

1 teaspoon capers

salt and pepper to taste
