Healthy Recipe: Avocado Egg Salad

I love making a big batch of hard boiled eggs at the beginning of the week.  I keep a few in the fridge to have on hand for a grab-n-go protein-rich snack and use the remaining for this quick and easy egg salad recipe.  Serve it over a bed of greens, spread it on a piece of whole grain toast or a brown rice cake, or serve it as a dip with veggies and whole grain crackers as a snack!

Ingredients:

  • 6 hard boiled eggs, shells removed
  • 1 celery stalk, thinly sliced
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp of vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp chopped herbs or chives
  • 1/2 tsp paprika + dash of cayenne
  • salt + pepper

In a bowl, combine avocado, Greek yogurt, mustard, vinegar, seasonings, and herbs.  Fold in the eggs, celery and scallions.  Enjoy!
