A few weeks ago I claimed on social media that Low-Carb Loaded Cauliflower Mock Potato Salad
was going to be my favorite new recipe of this summer. But as soon as I took a bite of this Low-Carb and High Protein Avocado Egg Salad
, I could tell it was also a serious contender for that honor. This was so easy, so good, and so delicious, especially if you're someone who loves the combination of mayo + eggs like I do. I'm sure this is a new favorite egg salad I'm going to make often when I need something quick and tasty to eat!
I've seen recipes on the web for egg salad with avocado and egg salad with cottage cheese, and the idea of combining them had been swirling around in my head for a while now. Then last week my brother Rand came to visit, and he's a vegetarian. So I made this recipe as something that would work for a vegetarian houseguest and a protein-obsessed salad eater (that would be me), and we both loved it. Rand ate his inside Joseph's Low-Carb Pita Bread
and I just ate mine plain.
And when I sat down to write this post I had a little bowl of the leftover egg and avocado salad, which was still delicious after being in the fridge overnight, yaay! I do think it's partly the combination of flavors in my dressing that made this such a wow for me, so if you try it I hope you will at least take a look at the recipe for my take on perfect egg salad and not just go on egg salad auto pilot! And I think you will like it!Click to continue reading
