  • ½ cup 120 ml mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp crème fraîche
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp capers
  • ½ ½ leek, finely choppedleeks, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp chili flakes
  • salt and pepper


Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Let the tuna drain.
  2. Mix together all ingredients, season with salt and pepper or chili flakes. You're all set!
  3. Serve with boiled eggs and LCHF sesame crispbread.


You can chop the eggs directly into the salad and add some hot chili sauce. You can also replace the sour cream with mayonnaise for a dairy-free option, or replace capers with olives or gherkins. Try it out with our homemade mayo—simply divine!

    Yeah, that's a great LCHF pro tip: read Swedish LCHF recipe blogs with Google Translate. It works surprisingly well. It makes you read and navigate a website almost like if it was written in your native language (with some hiccups)!

    I love to make stuffed mushrooms for the family for breakfast on the weekends. They go fast as hot cakes!! I stuff them with sausage, spinach, cream cheese, garlic, onions, tomato, hot sauce, etc., sometimes different bits of leftovers from the week. It's a great recipe because they are so versital. When I mention to friends that we had stuffed mushrooms for breakfast they all say "that sounds fabulous!"

    Fanny, nice breakfast recipe (the tuna/leek/capers)! I substituted a can of sardines for the tuna, and that was just fine. I really hate to cook, so I hope you will develop many simple "food assembly" type dishes. Delicious simplicity -- that's what I need to stay on the LCHF way of eating. Thank you in advance for your contribution to me. :)

    Hi, I'm breastfeeding, no health problems and I'm eating moderate low-carb. Is it bad that I ate almost the whole recipe from the bowl instead of dividing it into 4 servings?

    Can you specify the size of tuna can? There are a few sizes.....

    Hi Fanny - I found this posted in the egg-free breakfast but it has mayonnaise. Would you be able to add or suggest an alternative dressing in the recipe for people who can't eat eggs? I'm very interested to try this recipe. Thanks!

    Mayo is eggs, why is this recipe on the egg free list?
  14. Misha
    Jillyann, I just found out about Hellman's (aka Best Foods) Vegan Mayo. It's pretty tasty and is egg free. It was on the shelf at my grocery store and was not expensive like other vegan mayos I've tried (that tasted like Miracle Whip, ick!)

    One leek is approximately 9 carbs. The recipe calls for half of one and is 4 servings (1.125 per serving). The capers add maybe 1/2 a carb (.125) and the creme fraiche adds 1 carb (.25) perhaps the net total is closer to 1.5?
