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.

How to Make Ye Ol' Favorite Egg Salad with avocado twist


  1. Hard boil the eggs and peel. Put them in the fridge until cool.
  2. Once cool, mash the eggs up with a fork. Once it is mashed, add the mayo. Mix well.
  3. Add 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.
  4. Add 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.
  5. Cut 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.
  6. Sprinkle paprika over the salad mixture and serve on your favorite bread with sliced tomatoes.

They pack protein into a salad, are a fantastic on-the-go breakfast and a necessity for making deviled eggs. Hard boiled eggs are fantastic but are a bit intimidating to cooks....
