Avocado Egg Salad

Do you guys know about the website Toothpaste for Dinner?  I find it hilarious.  My college roommates and I used to print off all the ones that had to do with poop and hang them in our dorm bathroom.  Yes, mom and dad, that IS how I spent some of my precious time during my expensive Providence College education.  Hanging up poop signs such as this:

Or this:

Nothing better (or more mature) than a few poop jokes to start a blog post.  Especially a blog post with a recipe.  Especially a blog post with a recipe about EGGS.  I pretty much just guaranteed that a total of zero people will want to make this.

ANYWAYS.

During my weekly meal planning and food prepping on Sunday, I decided that I did not want to prep a quinoa salad or grilled chicken salads for lunches this week.  Those are my usual go-to lunch choices, and I do love both, but this week I was craving something different.  After a little experimenting, Tim and I came up with the following recipe:

Avocado Egg Salad

Avocado Egg Salad

Ingredients

  • 8 hard-boiled eggs
  • 2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 avocados, mashed
  • 1/2 cup celery, diced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • 1.5 tsp dill
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1.5 tbsp spicy mustard
  • Ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

All you have to do is mix it all together and mash-up with a fork.  Eat in a wrap or sandwich, on top of greens, or as is.  You can experiment with using only egg whites, but I do like keeping the yolk in.  I know 8 hard-boiled eggs seems like a lot, but don’t forget this will last you at least a few meals.

I’ve had a couple of these on Joseph’s flax oat bran and whole wheat lavash bread this week, and they did not disappoint!

Anyone have any egg salad recipes they want to share? 

Oh, and by the way, if you think you need heaping spoonfuls of mayo in your egg salad for it to taste delicious, sorry but… you’re wrong.
