Avocado Egg Salad
Its the height of avocado season and what better way to enjoy these fresh ripe fruits than in salad at The Salad Bar?
Each month we gather at The Salad Bar to celebrate salad based on a common ingredient picked by our Salad Bartender, Wendy from The Weekend Gourmet !
This month it is avocado’s turn to shine! These fruits are available from California, Mexico, Florida, Peru and other countries at your favorite grocer or Farmer’s Market. Avocados are high in protein, beneficial fats like omega-3, Carotenoids, vitamins A and C. Good fat that is heart healthy!
I thought fresh hard boiled eggs and avocado would make a great salad. A few bacon bits and some capers round out the flavors.
Nowadays you can turkey bacon and/or lower cholesterol eggs and of course low-fat mayo and even mayo with olive oil if you like or need to reduce your cholesterol intake.
I wasn’t always an avocado fan. I needed to try them again as an adult to appreciate their flavor. I can eat this salad alone or with crackers, but I’m a sucker for stuffed tomatoes. This salad works perfectly for small Roma plum tomatoes. They’re even egg shaped, right? 😉
- 2 eggs, hard boiled
- 1 medium avocado
- 1/2 tsp bacon bits
- 1/2 tsp capers, miced
- 2 Roma plum tomatoes, seeded part flesh removed
- 1 tsp light mayo
- salt and pepper to taste
Mix together eggs, bacon, capers, mayo, salt and pepper. Fill tomatoes and serve. This goes especially well with a glass of lemonade or limeade.
