Tuna, Avocado, and Romaine Salad

This was delicious! I was looking for entree salad recipes and stumbled across Martha Stewart’s page of “ Quick Main course salad recipes.  Martha Stewart is not one of my go-to pages for recipes, probably because most of them that I had come across seemed time-consuming and challenging.   All 63 recipes were simple and easy to follow.   For tuna salad recipe, click here


  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 cans (6 ounces) tuna, packed in oil
  • 1 large head romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 bunch radishes, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced


First, I had to look up how to cut radishes.  I’ve eaten them, but never used them myself.  Turns out, nothing tricky about it.  It helped to cut them lengthwise.

I used less olive oil, (about 2 tablespoons) 1 tbsp vinegar, 2 tbsp white wine, ( I didn’t have white wine vinegar)  and added 3 stalks celery.  More mustard.  Delicious! Look forward to making this again.
