This easy 5-ingredient canned fish salad is so easy to make and ideal to serve with any crunchy vegetables, leafy salad bowls or bell pepper halves.
Just like this Keto Everything Bagel Creamy Egg Salad and this Low-Carb Cold Plate with Smoked Salmon, it's an easy cold dinner or lunch recipe that won't heat up your kitchen. You can even have it for breakfast with a slice or two of my 90-Second Keto Bread.
Just like all fatty fish, sardines are good for you, and that includes canned fish.
But not everyone is a fan, I get it! If this is your case, use canned salmon, mackerel or tuna instead. You could even use shredded chicken breasts but you may need double the mayonnaise to keep it nice and creamy.
This is a relatively small meal that's best as a light lunch or dinner option. If you need a more satisfying meal, you can simply double the recipe. If you need to make it egg-free or you want to reduce the amount of fat, swap sour cream for the mayonnaise.
You can make all of these customizations and lots more in our KetoDiet App!
