I love avocados.
And I love egg salad, but I am less fond of mayonnaise.
I forget where I heard about this combination (probably Twitter, hello), but I looked on some recipe web sites and they are all about the same. Super quick and easy, and rather delicious.
Avocado Egg Salad
4 hard boiled eggs, peeled and cut in 4 pieces
1/2 an avocado
1 stalk of celery, diced
2 tablespoons red onion, finely diced
Salt and pepper to taste.
Toss it all in a bowl and mash up the eggs and avocado. I eat mine on whole wheat crackers, but I suppose you could make a sandwich out of it, too!
What’s the latest food combination you wanted to try?

This kind of sounds tasty. I would have never put the two together.
I’ve also been craving olives and feta cheese together. I made a kalamata olive and feta pasta, and I’ve thrown the combo into a salad, this week alone.
And no: not pregnant.
I put olives and feta on a pizza once but I did not like the combination. Too salty for my tastes.
I have been all over garlic stuffed olives and just polished off a greek pasta salad that I ate nonstop the last 3 days and never got tired of. I always have kalamata olives in my house! aidan loves them too.
I am really tempted to try this egg salad…hate mayo, but this really looks good! and if I like it I can have it all to myself because my hubby hates avacadoes (I don’t know what is wrong with him!) and eggs.
@aidanmama, I could sit down and eat an avocado plain. They are one of the best foods ever. IMO.
Aunt J just recently told me that whenever I was coming to town to visit (when I was a kid) she would make a batch of egg salad because it was the only thing she was sure I would eat. I love it! This recipe sounds great.
Here is a link to a smashed chickpea salad that has become a staple in my lunch box to spread on wheat toast. http://smittenkitchen.com/2009/01/smashed-chickpea-salad/
I like that chickpea recipe. Wonder if the kids would try it. They love chickpeas; Kate loves hummus, but Flora doesn’t. I think M likes it, but there’s something he’s allergic too in the store bought one we usually buy.
I do like egg salad with mayo, but I think I like this recipe better.
