Egg and Avocado Salad

Egg and Avocado Salad

 

Making a quick and healthy lunch is always a challenge in my house. I am always running around during the middle of the day trying to finish up cleaning before I have to pick up the kids from school so lunch for me is usually a boring salad. I am trying to switch things up which helps me stay focused with my weight loss this year

This light Egg and Avocado Salad is perfect since you can make the hard boiled eggs a head of time and then just mix everything together when you are ready to eat it. Not like a traditional egg salad this uses Greek yogurt with the mayo. It will cut down the fat of the mayo making it light and delicious. No guilty seconds here. 

My kids are not egg salad fans but when I make this Egg and Avocado Salad, they all always ask for some for lunch. I will be serving this over the summer for those hot days hanging out with them outside in the pool and sprinkler. Makes a perfect summery lunch option for everyone.

    1. You could go lighter on the avocado, still healthy since you are using less mayo. The textures are great 🙂
