June Reader Recipe: JC’s Curry Avocado Egg Salad

In my Reader Recipes series, I am highlighting one F&F reader a month so they can share their favorite recipes with all of you.  This month’s recipe comes from reader JC in upstate New York.  Thank you, JC, for sharing a reader recipe!

First I want to say thank you so much to Athena for allowing me to share on her wonderful page!

I blog over at Sweet Love and Ginger, mostly about food; I’m kind of in love with it.  There are some other adventures thrown in there, but my blog (much like my life) centers around food.  I am totally one of those people who works out just so that I can eat whatever I want.

Don’t hate.

This particular recipe is the brain child of about a million other recipes that I’ve seen for egg salad, and my own personal touch.  I am always looking for ways to “dress up” cheap proteins.  Those of us who work out a lot know how valuable good lean protein is, and how expensive it can be, so I try to take things like eggs, tuna, and chicken and bend the rules a little bit to create new and delicious treats with them.

I chose to use avocado to keep it healthy, but you can feel free to swap it for yogurt or mayonnaise, it works with both.  I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do!
