Avocado No Mayo Egg Salad



Deviled eggs was on my list to make for the Sabbath until I found this recipe for Avocado Egg Salad.  The word avocado is magic and when I see it, likely, there will be a new dish on the horizon.  That happened today and now we have a new dish waiting to be eaten.

Avocado No Mayo Egg Salad


Ingredients:

4 eggs
1/2 avocado - peeled, pitted and diced
2 tablespoons prepared Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Method:


1. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Boil for 10 minutes, then transfer eggs to a bowl of warm water. Allow eggs to rest in the warm water for 10 more minutes.

2. Peel and rinse eggs under cold water to cool; cube eggs.

3. Mash eggs, avocado, and mustard in a bowl with a fork until well mixed. Season with salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Top with a little dill or other herb.

  14. Just made this for lunch. Was very good but next time I will use only 1T of Dijon as it had too much mustard flavor and not enough avocado & egg flavors.
