Best Low Carb Tuna Salad

This is my Best Low Carb Tuna Salad recipe. Everyone has their own version of tuna salad. This is the best low-carb version I've had.  Plenty of flavor, 5 minutes to make.  The ingredients include good solid-pack albacore tuna in water, sliced olives, scallions, celery and a little mayonnaise.  A nice clean recipe. 165 calories. 2.11g carbs.

Place the tuna in a medium sized bowl.  Using a fork break the tuna apart into smaller pieces.  I like mine "medium" sized, not all ground up looking.

Now add the onions, olives and celery, mix again.

Then, add the mayonnaise and stir gently to combine.  The mixture should be nicely moistened but not mushy.

You can eat it right away but if you want it to taste a lot better, give it at least an hour in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed container.  It's even better overnight (I just don't always plan ahead that much).

I really like to serve this in the summer atop a fresh, ripe, tomato.  Grocery store tomatoes are dismal so I don't bother unless it is summer.  You can also serve it on an avocado half.  Of course this will add more calories and about 6 more grams of carbs.  Other times I just eat a little out of a bowl.
