AN EASY AVOCADO EGG SALAD RECIPE

Avocado Egg Salad is a delicious take on the traditional egg salad with the addition of creamy and buttery avocado. This Egg Salad is what I serve 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? :-/

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, “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.

What I’m trying to say is that you should also try my Avocado Chicken Egg Salad – goooood stuff!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
