Tuna Caesar Salad – You’ll Love This Amazing Recipe!
A keto-friendly, low-carb Tuna Caesar Salad recipe that features Parmesan crisps. These crisps are the perfect, keto-friendly substitute for traditional croutons. Thank you Bella Portofino Tuna for sponsoring today’s post.
Being on a low-carb lifestyle can sometimes be difficult. I am not going to lie; I did keto for 5 weeks and discovered that sticking to an extremely low-carb lifestyle was one of the hardest things I have ever done. However, the now 17 lb. weight loss I have yielded from my efforts has motivated me to be the best version of myself.
One of my favorite staples on my lifestyle change has been high-quality tuna. I prefer a quality brand like Bella Portofino Tuna. This brand is available at my local markets and made with hand-selected, wild-caught Yellowfin & Albacore tuna. It is packed in EVOO (and sea salt) and has a nice flaky, mellow taste and texture. I love the eye-catching can and the premium tuna inside!
In fact, this tuna is perfect for keto because it is packed in EVOO and really doesn’t need any mayo unless you want to incorporate more fat into the meal.
Chicken Caesar salads are my FAVE so I wanted to play on that with the Bella Portofino Tuna. I added a little quality Caesar dressing to the tender, flaky tuna to make the tuna salad. Then, I added it to a traditional bed of romaine, red onion, and Parmesan cheese. If you love Caesar dressing you can toss your romaine with it, but I use the creaminess of the tuna to complement the lettuce.
Since bread is typically not keto-friendly, I used Parmesan Cheese to make crisps for the salad.
This delicious tuna salad was low in net carbs per serving and fed my husband and myself easily for dinner.
