Ye Ol' Favorite Egg Salad with avocado twist
This is a great summer lunch. It's simple and easy and quick. You can make it the night before to take on a picnic. The variation on the old recipe will have them asking for more.
- hard boiled eggs
- 1/2 c
- 1-2 tsp
- brown, spicy mustard
- 1 tsp
- 1 pinch
- salt and pepper
- 1 tsp
- 1/3 c
- green olives with pimentos (optional)
- 1/2 small
- onion, minced
- 1 small
- pepper, green or red (optional)
- ripe avocado
3Add 1 teaspoon of mustard and mix. Taste. If you like it a little stronger add the other teaspoon. Add the horseradish, salt, pepper and mix again.
4Add the onion. Dice your pepper. I like to use the red or green ones for color and I like a little crunch to it. But, you can skip if you want. Cut open your avocado in halve. Slice the inside of the avocado and scoop out into the salad. Mix again.
5Cut your olives in half. You can put them in the salad (sometimes kids don't like green olives) or leave them out for everyone to put on their sandwich if they like.
