Avocado egg salad
Avocado egg salad is healthier than regular egg salad. It works particularly well for someone who cannot eat mayonnaise due to food allergies. Plus, I like avocado egg salad better than regular egg salad. There was a time I would have never thought I’d say that because I did not care of avocados at all. But marriage changes some things. Marrying someone who likes avocados was a good thing.
Avocado egg salad is as simple as replacing the mayonnaise with mashed up avocados. I use four boiled eggs for each avocado, ¼ tsp. of salt and pepper and a bit of pickle juice. I do not measure the pickle juice. I just add a bit till it has the moister content that is desirable. The pickle juice is from homemade pickles. If I am out of cucumber pickle juice, I use the juice from pickled okra, or even pickled beans.

Have you noticed my cute goat kid glass cutting board? I am very fond of it. It has cheered many a chopping hours in the last five years. I was hoping if something ever happened to this one that it could be replaced. Recently, I looked to see if it was still being sold and could not find it. I did find this goat glass cutting board though, and it is nearly just as cute.
Avocado stuffed eggs can be made similar to avocado egg salad. Of course you would only mash up the egg yolks with the avocado and stuff it into the whites. I really like avocado stuffed eggs as well. However, I think they are best eaten right away while the eggs are still warm. They do not taste as good once they are cold. Plus, avocados turn dark after a while. So avocado stuffed eggs do not make the best make a head and refrigerate dish.
