Avocado Egg Salad

  • 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 medium avocado, pitted
  • 1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Whole wheat bread for serving.

Directions

  1. Roughly chop hard boiled eggs and place into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Halve and pit the avocados, then with your knife, gently make a criss-cross pattern to divide the flesh into squares. Scoop the flesh into the mixing bowl, leaving the avocado in chunks. Add the chopped green onions, Greek yogurt, and mustard to the bowl. Combine with a fork, leaving the eggs and avocado chunky. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Serve immediately with whole wheat toast, tomatoes, and spinach or over cucumbers or crackers! Enjoy!
