Keto Tuna Salad with Pesto

This is a rich tuna salad, served as a salad, that’s punched up with pesto and lemon. It’s creamy without feeling overly heavy, so it’s perfect for serving up as a summery lunch.

I also love that this dish can be tossed together in less than 10 minutes and is a single serving. This makes it great for those of you who are taking lunch to work or live alone. Plus, if you keep the basic ingredients on hand in your pantry then it’s an inexpensive option that you can make whenever you want.
