Paleo Diet Tuna Salad Recipe

5 Minute Paleo Diet Tuna Salad Recipe

I love easy. Easy is good. Especially when it has to do with cooking. And for the love of easy, I have a treat for you today: an easy recipe!

This Paleo Diet Tuna Salad Recipe is bomb, and you can prepare it in 5 minutes or less. Isn’t that just the best? That’s exactly the kind of Paleo cooking I like to do…easy, convenient, and yummy.

My husband and I have been enjoying this recipe for lunch a lot lately, usually after our workouts. We’ll get home after the gym, I’ll put this salad together really fast, and then we devour. This tuna salad contains lots of healthy fats, is a great source of protein, is low in carbohydrates, and it’s got lots of great flavor! It truly is a wonderful Paleo lunch (or snack) option.

I like to buy my canned Albacore Tuna from Whole Foods. I get the one that comes in olive oil, because I feel like that’s the one that has the best taste. If you haven’t tried it yet, and you have a Whole Foods available in your city, just go and buy yourself a few Albacore Tuna cans in Olive Oil. I bet you’ll love it; you’ll like it a lot more than the ones that comes in water.

Today is April Fools Day, and I have not been tricked or fooled yet…but then again, it’s only 9:45am right now. I guess we’ll see how long my “luck” lasts.

Have a great day! XO
