It’s time to get the “skinny” on yummy food. And in this case it’s something mixed with avocado.
I have a love affair with avocado. I could pretty much eat it daily, at every meal (and in between), and never grow tired of it. Which I guess is a good thing due to avocado’s and their amazing amount of protein, beneficial fats, carotenoids, heart healthy ways. A diet rich in Avocado also helps lower cholesterol levels, which is a good thing for my hubby.
When Brielle was really young, I introduced her to Avocado and she’s been enjoying it ever since. She just loves it.
So when I found out that we were doing a Skinny Sunday Supper, is was an easy decision to turn to something with Avocado.
This Avocado Egg Salad wrap is one of those things that I honestly really never measured out. I just kinda threw it all together. We throw things like this together a lot. And I’ve taught Brielle to do the same. We both knew that that this Avocado Egg Salad was one of
the skinniest thing we make and that it needed to make it’s debut on my blog. I have a tendency to take a classic recipe and twist it into something that isn’t traditionally done.
Of course with all this said, I’ve seen at least a dozen or more recipes for Avocado Egg Salad but they all called for mayo which is NOT calorie friendly. And you can substitute greek yogurt for the mayo, but you don’t even need to with this recipe – it calls for neither. It’s creamy and wonderful all on it’s own.
We serve it on whole what tortillas and with slices of onion, tomatoes and green pepper to garnish with you if you choose. Enjoy!
This is better than classic egg salad... it kicks it up a notch, makes it a little healthier and the flavor.... is amazing!
- 1 medium avocado, sliced
- 4 hard boiled egg yolks
- 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
- 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
- 4 hard boiled egg whites, chopped
- 1 tablespoon chives, finely chopped
- tortilla wrap or lettuce for wrap
In a medium bowl, mash the avocado. Add the egg yolks and mash together.
Add the salt, pepper and red wine vinegar and blend together.
Stir in the egg whites and the chives.
Lay a piece of lettuce on the wrap. Spoon the avocado egg salad into the wrap. Roll it up and serve with sliced tomatoes. So good!
If you want to take it a step further, leave the wrap out and roll up in a lettuce wrap!
