Paleo Tuna Salad

We love getting more seafood into our diet, and adding in tuna is a super easy way since it’s so readily available in cans. This tuna salad recipe is Paleo and Ketogenic (as well as low carb). It’s also AIP-friendly (follow the instructions in the recipe for AIP substitutions).  (AIP stands for Paleo autoimmune protocol.)

This recipe is super easy to make – it takes under 10 minutes from start to eat. So, it’s great for lunch or dinner or as a quick snack.
