Day 23 Avocado and Egg Salad

Spring Clean Your Body

Spring Clean Your Body Logo

This weekend I was introduced to an interesting egg salad filling with avocado.  You may think that you shouldn’t eat avocados because they’re high in fat and therefore high in calories.  The calories are good calories, though, because avocados are nutrient dense and are a high quality fat.

I made a good guess about what to put in the batch I made tonight.  It’s very tasty, and I thought you’d like to make it too.  You can make substitutions according to foods  you have on hand and your personal preferences – I’ve made several recommendations for substitutions.

Avocado and Egg Salad

3 or 4 hard boiled eggs (sliced or chunked)

1 avocado (peeled and diced in large chunks)

1-2 scallions rough chopped

Dressing

2-3 Tablespoons Mayonnaise or Nayonaise (made with soy)

Stir in a little milk, soy milk, or almond breeze (almond milk) to make it a little thinner.  I used Almond Breeze.

A tablespoon of spicy brown mustard (or any kind of mustard, or no mustard)

Salt and Pepper to taste

I’m planning to eat mine on gluten free crackers (Martha’s Gone Crackers), on celery sticks, and as a side dish with my salad.

If you make this, let me know how it turned out and if you made a different version (comment at the link below).  I think you could go crazy substituting and making several different versions.  If you don’t go too crazy, even kids would like it.

    Interesting! We eat ours every weekend with a little olive oil and salt and nothing else. My kids love it too and eat it as a spread on their rice cakes.

    Liat – Thanks for the reframing about how to eat avocados. I always thought they had to be eaten as part of something. Now I have a new idea….to eat them plain! I’ll do that this weekend because I have two ripe ones ready for the knife.

    Finally made this recipe last night — absolutely delicious! I had mine with spinach. I forgot to get scallions, and didn’t have any green onion, so I had to settle for a bit of onion powder. I have leftovers, so I’m going try it today with red cabbage and spinach.

    Hi Susan – I love it when people get creative with recipes. Did you put the spinach in it instead of the avocado? And how did you do it with the red cabbage?
