I serve it as a big ole entree for me, and me only! Me likey mucho.

Alright Alright Alright! Hallo, Monday! Hallo, my dear friends! Remember when your dad used to answer the phone with, “YELLOW?” Remember that!?
I used to think, “Oh my gosh, stop it dad, you’re so ancient!”

The guy was like 38…

Uhm, yah… I’m like a year away from that number. Doesn’t seem so ancient anymore, now does it?

Annnnywaaaays….

SO! Let’s get this week started with:

HOW TO MAKE AVOCADO EGG SALAD

WITH Bacon. BOOM! Suddenly, our food-life seems complete!

We’re keeping it simple today. Like, whoa! it’s Monday! type-of-simple.  Just kick your feet up and enjoy.

Oh no, wait. This does involve a bit of chopping, so get your feet off the table and grab a knife. BUT don’t be like me and sharpen thy knife, then forget that you sharpened it, and then go slicing up avocados and fingers all at the same time, m’kay? Don’t be like me.

I eat avocados like it’s my job. Every day I eat half of an avocado for lunch and sometimes I finish the other half for dinner. A sprinkle of salt and pepper with a squeeze of lime juice is all I need to devour my green and buttery friend.

However, sometimes my breakfast friends, eggs and bacon, love to get up all in that mix and make this girl a very, very happy gourmand.

Before I toss the salad, I shake up a yogurt dressing with a little sour cream, some lime juice and dill – so good! Tangy and creamy, just as it should be, but without the mayo.

NOTES

I always think about putting ranch dressing on this salad. Sounds good, right? Ranch could always be the answer to all my foods. Like, french fries. YUM!

You might also consider adding chopped carrots, celery and capers, and take this salad to your aunt’s potluck. Just a thought.

  2. Cheryl

    I am super excited to try this recipe.. I bought jalapeno ranch dressing by litehouse and it is not to spicy at all.. I think that it would be eggcellent in this recipe!!

  3. Angela

    What is considered a serving for this recipe? Is the nutrition information that you posted for the entire dish? I made this recipe and it is wonderful. I am following a keto diet and it is perfect meal.

  4. It works with anything really that you use avocados with. I personally have forgotten about some fridge for 9 days and when I open the container to dispose of it was still just as pretty green as the day I made it. It works try it. Thanks for your delicious recipes.

  5. Rachel

    I have made this recipe many times and keep myself going back to it because it’s one of those that uses pretty standard ingredients and makes a wonderful salad for lunch. I highly recommend.

  6. Karen

    Hi Katerina! I SO want to make this for lunch but I’m totally out of limes & yogurt. When you talked about trying this with ranch dressing, is that without using ANY of the yogurt dressing ingredients? Wanted to make sure ’cause I’m dying to whip some up! 😉

  7. Tanya

    Quick question – possible to make the day ahead? Having a brunch and would like to prep as much as possible. The avocado is my only fear, but the lime may keep it from turning brown. Just curious!

    1. Hi Tanya! I’ve tried doing that, but no matter how much lime you put on that avocado, it will still turn brown after a few hours. But, you can make the rest of the salad a day ahead and then add the avocado the next day, right before you’re ready to serve it. I think that may be the best way to go about it.

      1. Juanice

        I wonder if after making the salad ahead, if you could take plastic wrap & lay directly on the salad, pressing down a little to seal then press up the sides. It’s actually air that causes avocados to brown. I do this with guacomole & it works fine. Just a thought…

      2. Emily Smith

        Just a little trick that an awesome Latino chef taught me years ago. If you put the pit in with the salad it will never turn brown. It works with guacamole or anything really that you use avocados with. I personally have forgotten about some guacamole in the fridge for 9 days and when I open the container to dispose of it was still just as pretty green as the day I made it. It works try it. Thanks for your delicious recipes.

  8. Kim Robertson

    I loved this salad. It was so light and fresh with the healthy dressing, and my husband even cleaned his plate. I did toss in a handful of shredded cheddar and omitted the salt. (not that it HAD to have cheese, but was just in the mood for it) Thank you for sharing.

  9. This salad will happen to be on my table tomorrow. Because it’s awesome. Totally healthy and belly friendly as well. I love this so much Katerina. Thank you so much for this recipe!

  10. I can’t believe I married a man who doesn’t like avocado!! But he likes bacon.. so maybe I can talk him into this one because I want it!

  11. I absolutely love egg salad. I eat it all the time on Paleo and love that I can use avocado and make my mayo. Sometimes I cheat and use sour cream and yogurt like your recipe! I can’t wait to try it!

  12. bahaha! My grandpa always answered the phone “Yellow?” but I thought it was just a Southern thing. I guess it’s everywhere!

    My husband’s been asking for egg salad recently – I definitely need to make this for him! It looks so good!
