Eggsactly What I was Thinking…..

Standard

I think this next recipe will go over extremely well in my house.  My husband is back on the healthy eating train and boiled eggs are his middle name.  I found the next recipe on Pinterest and I also found a super easy way to boil eggs (without all the mess).  This egg salad is perfect for a healthy lunch wrap, a dip for carrots & celery to snack on, or just plain good on anything. Enjoy!

 

Avocado Egg Salad 

* recipe can be found at Skinnytaste

  • 4 large hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • 4 hard boiled egg whites, chopped (discard the rest)
  • 1 medium hass avocado, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 Tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp fat free plain yogurt
  • 1/2 Tbsp finely chopped chives
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • pinch freshly ground pepper

     

    Preparation:

    Combine the egg yolks with the avocado, light mayo, yogurt, chives, vinegar, salt and pepper.  Mash with a fork.  Combine with egg whites and adjust salt as needed.  Store in an airtight container with plastic wrap pressed tightly against the salad to keep from browning.
