Tuna and Avocado Salad

I’ve always admired and enjoyed Ina Garten’s recipes – they’re simple yet delicious.  It’s even more appealing that they normally contain a minimum of ingredients.  Recently, I found the Barefoot Bloggers group and decided to join…I’ll be cooking and baking my way through lots of Ina’s recipes.  I hope you’ll come back and see how I fare!

The first recipe of the month is Tuna and Avocado Salad selected by Kate of Warm Olives and Cool Cocktails.  This is really a departure for me…I am not a fan of tuna and normally, I focus on baking…not cooking.  But that is part of the challenge of this group!
