Avocado & Egg Salad

I am so excited about this recipe!! I have been wanting to work on it for a while now. I eat avocado with my eggs every morning and my son says.. ” Mom you should make a recipe that puts this all together.. our 2 favorite foods in one!” He was so right!!  It was worth waiting for and its a Healthy Selection too! Enjoy! 🙂 IMG_20170818_090205_048

You will need:

  • 2 ripened avocados cubed
  • 1 lime for zest and juice
  • 6 hard boiled eggs peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 c red onion diced (dice a little more for garnish)
  • 1/2 c Kraft Olive Oil Mayo
  • 1/4 c sliced black olives (slice up a little more for garnish)
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp basil (I used organic dried but fresh is good too just use a little more)
  • 3/4 tsp dill (again I used dried)
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper (add more if you are a pepper person)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (optional…I try to not use added salt in my recipes)IMG_20170816_185212497_HDR

In a medium bowl put cubed avocado, about a 1/4 tsp of lime zest and the juice of half the lime and gently stir just to coat….we don’t want guacamole!! 🙂

Add the sliced boiled eggs, red onion, and all spices. Fold gently just to coat it all with the spices. Add mayo and black olives and again gently stir until all is blended. Garnish with more dill, red onion, and black olives. (Salad is better if you let it marinate at least 15 min in frig)IMG_20170816_190931090

Scoop onto lettuce or into a tortilla. It’s also good on any bread or just by itself!

With the mayo and the lime juice this salad lasts up to 2 days refrigerator then the browning of the avocado begins. Recipe can be doubled or more for more servings. This recipe serves approx. 4. IMG_20170818_090205_048
