5 stars from 2 ratings of Avocado Egg Salad

This delicious egg salad recipe calls for creamy mashed avocado in the place of the usual mayonnaise.

Even if you like mayonnaise, give it a try anyway, because it's just plain delicious [and much healthier].

It has a lovely fresh taste, and it's definitely a nice new twist on a tired old dish. Try it out - you won't be sorry you did.

Boil your eggs

Eggs | Source

Everyone has their own method for boiling eggs [believe it or not] depending on how well-cooked they like them. I put mine in cold water, boil for ten minutes, and call it done.

Peel your eggs

I submerge my eggs in cold water immediately after they're done cooking, as it seems to make them easier to peel.

Chop the eggs

Slice the eggs into rough chunks with a sharp knife.

Add Avocado

Source

Peel avocado and remove seed, then slice into chunks and add to eggs. Add 1 tablespoon mustard, and mash with a fork until you achieve the desired consistency.

Add pepper and seasonings

Source

Add salt and black pepper, to taste. Finely chop some red bell pepper, and add that. Drizzle with lemon juice [this adds flavor, and has the additional benefit of preventing the avocado from discoloring as quickly].

Serve as is, or make into sandwiches and enjoy!
