Egg Salad 2.0

July 06, 2013 2 min read

Egg Salad. You either love it or you hate it. While I love hard boiled eggs, I don't really care for commercial mayo and eating it on bread can be messy, so I tend to skip egg salad. Until now. Some people will sub Greek Yogurt for the mayo, but to me, the taste difference is really apparent and it just isn't the same, no matter how you spice it up. Greek Yogurt is not as thick as mayo and doesn't mix in the same. Enter avocado. Say what? Yes! Avocado:
  • Is amazingly delicious, rich, and creamy
  • Is chock full of antioxidants that help strengthen your immune system
  • Has healthy fat properties that benefit heart and brain functions
  • Helps stabilize blood sugar
  • Is good for your eyes and helps combat against macular degeneration, cataracts, and poor eyesight
  • Helps keep blood pressure in check
  • Contains anti-inflammatory agents
  • Aids in digestion
  • Keeps your body young and vital by lending a hand to support the liver and nervous system
  • Has many nutrients including fiber, potassium, Vitamins C & K, B6, and folate
That is just to name a few! This quick and easy meal can be made ahead and, depending on your dietary preferences, can be packaged in different ways.
  • Egg Salad on a Whole Wheat or Ezekiel Wrap
  • Egg Salad on top of a large green salad with tomato, cucumber, onion, radishes
  • Egg Salad lettuce wrap with a side of grape tomatoes
  If you want to make it even faster, you can pick up pre-made guacamole at the grocery store (just be sure to check the ingredients list - you want to avoid weird or sneaky preservatives or ingredients). For the ultimate fastest way to prepare this egg salad base, you can purchase pre-cooked hard boiled eggs as well. I tend to gravitate toward pasturized/free range/kosher eggs so this isn't really an option for me. Boiling eggs is simple and only takes about 20 minutes total.
  1. Place your eggs in a large pot and cover with water (just over the tops of the eggs).
  2. Turn your stove on high and cover the pot.
  3. Just before it boils, turn the temp down and simmer about 10 minutes.
  4. Remove eggs and place in an ice water bath for at least 5 - 7 minutes. This stops the cooking process and makes it easier to peel the eggs.
  5. Place peeled eggs in a large bowl and  break up with a fork (or, if you are like me, I just use my  hands).
  6. Place either 1 whole pitted avocado or 1 package pre-made guac into bowl and combine with the eggs.
  7. Eat!
