"I made this recipe up when I had an abundance of avocados and wanted something other than guacamole. I shocked myself at how tasty this egg salad was and my honey loved it too!"

This was a nice option for using up avocados and eggs. Yum. My only modification was using dijon mustard. You can avoidthe dicoloration when storing if you put ONE avocado pit in the container with the salad before sealing tightly (just like storing guac).

It came out pretty well. I had more avocado than egg because I love avocados. I added a little cheese and lettuce and used white onion instead of red. I think red would have made it taste more like guacamole which could be nice.

I make this recipe but add two tbsp of jarred pimientos, one tbsp balsamic vinegar, and 1/4 cup diced celery...delicious!

I added Texas 1015's instead of the red onions. We loved it. When storing for left overs place plastic wrap driectly on top and press down lightly. This will help with the discoloration of the salad.

I got the lap band a few months ago and had to be on 2 weeks of liquids and 2 weeks of mushy foods after the surgery. It got old, so I went looking for something new I could do with eggs and avocado. When I saw this recipe I was dubious. Having tasted all these ingredients separately, I just didn't see them tasting good together lol. Boy was I wrong. OMG this is so yummy! Even now that I'm not on mushies anymore, I still make this for lunch weekly. I always try to figure out what makes all these things taste good together, I think it's the sweet pickles. I use a pre-made sweet pickle relish cause I'm lazy lol, it really just ties everything together. So don't doubt it, try it! Yum!

I used to get something similar to this at a deli but it was called the Yankee Doodle and served on soft sub roll. Only the sliced avacodo was sliced along with strips of fried bacon. Yumm.. one of my favs!

Very tasty and easy. I diced everything instead of mashing. Excellent sandwiches too!

This was surprisingly delicious. The color was weird and only got weirder as leftovers, but if you can get past that and give it a taste, you'll forgive the appearance immediately. I did not have a fresh red onion, so used dried chopped onions instead. The sweet pickles really made the dish, I think.
