Avocado Egg Salad

SO excited to share this recipe with you! Overnight, this dish has become a go-to meal for me, and I hope it will be for you as well. It's decadent and creamy, with a pop of tang and crunch, but it's also wonderfully healthy -- AND super easy to make! You'll be happy to see that the directions are minimal -- because all you have you to do is mix everything together (seriously). I topped mine on a piece of toast and greens, and garnished with a little paprika, and it was SOOOOO good. Reallyyyy looking forward to eating some more tomorrow! :)

And the avocado beat goes on... Dig it...

* 1/2 cup red onion, diced (about 1/2 small red onion)
* 2 celery stalks, diced
* 1 tablespoon chives, chopped
* 1 lemon, juiced
* 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar (substitution: any vinegar you have on hand, or more lemon -- but the vinegar is highly recommended)

* Optional garnish: sprinkle of paprika

Directions
* Gently mash together the cubed avocado and chopped eggs.
 
* Mix the rest of the ingredients into the avocado-egg mixture.

  1. I would have never thought to combine eggs and avocados, but after reading the recipe it sounds totally interesting. I can see why this is a go-to meal, it has a little bit of everything.

    1. Yay! Hope ya like it!! I wouldn't keep it longer than 3-4 days. It helps to to place in single serving containers that are airtight. The top will start to brown a little because of the avocado, but it will still be good. I froze some, so we'll see how that goes!

  3. This looks really good and I do not typically like egg salad. I think I will make it for my next picnic, which is tomorrow!
