We love egg salad. In fact, we’ve shared our go-to egg salad recipe before. We really don’t like to add too many ingredients to it — a little mayo, some celery and fresh herbs are all we need. That is until we stumbled across the idea of adding avocado to it. The thought of combining two of our favorite ingredients into one creamy and easy egg salad made us giddy.
Easy Avocado Egg Salad Recipe
This egg salad combines two of our favorite things: eggs and avocado. In addition to the avocado, we add a little mayonnaise for moisture, celery for crunch, fresh herbs and a small amount of lemon juice to brighten things up.
1 tablespoon finely chopped chives, parsley or dill
Salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
Mash avocado, mayonnaise and lemon juice together in a medium bowl. Stir in the eggs, celery and chives. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. (Egg salad is best eaten the same day as making).
ADAM AND JOANNE’S TIPS
To make hard-cooked (hard-boiled) eggs, in a saucepan, cover eggs with 1 inch (2 1/2 cm) of cold water, bring to a boil then immediately remove from heat and cover with lid. Let eggs stand, covered in the hot water for 12 minutes. Then plunge eggs into ice cold water to stop the cooking.
