One thing we love about the Barefoot Contessa is that she has a magical touch for making seemingly basic dishes become an explosion of flavor. Whether it’s a seasonal salad or a quick chicken dish, Ina Garten’s knack for bringing flavor inspires us with every dish. This time around, we’re fantasizing about this Tomato and Avocado Salad.

Despite tomatoes being in season from May to Oct, avocados are always in season and it’s not like tomatoes are too hard to find at your local grocer! Obviously, the recipe calls for avocados and tomatoes, but it also calls for ingredients like arugula, olive oil, and red onions, to name a few.

This salad recipe takes less than eight steps to create, from starting with pouring lemon juice into the mixing bowl and ending by checking your seasonings.

Whether you’re a professional chef or this is the first-ever recipe you want to achieve, this recipe is almost fool-proof. Besides the delicious and savory flavor, this recipe is so simple that anyone can achieve it!

Plus, it can work with any meal plan you have, from meal prepping for the week, or serving the entire family in one go.
