Guacamole Egg Salad

in Other, Sandwiches

I have been spending this wonderful weekend with my favorite guy in my life:

1683My dad!

He is in town to run the Omaha Marathon…and to see me, of course! ;)  I don’t want to spend too much time blogging/with technology this weekend, so I am just dropping by to share a quick and delicious Summertime recipe, even though it is technically the first day of Fall.  Heck, I plan on eating this one year round!

guacamole egg salad 4Guacamole Egg Salad

Servings: 2

Ingredients

6 hard-boiled eggwhites (you can use the whole egg, but I don’t like hard-boiled yolks), chopped
1 ripe avocado, smashed
juice of 1 small lime
1 small tomato, chopped
1/4 red onion, diced
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
sea salt, to taste
Romaine lettuce OR four pieces of whole wheat bread (toasted)
salsa, optional

Directions

I hope these directions aren’t too difficult to comprehend ;).

1. Place all ingredients into a medium bowl.

2. Stir until well-combined.

3. Store covered in your refrigerator for up to 3 to 4 days.

4. Once chilled, serve in sandwich form or over a bed a lettuce.  Top with salsa, if desired.

guacamole egg saladI have recently been obsessed with all things “egg salad” related…add in some avocado and I am extra happy!

guacamole egg salad 9I ate my second serving of the salad in sandwich form on break at work the next day (hence the gorgeous paper plate).  I loved it served between two slices of toasted whole wheat bread.  I left off the salsa this time, but it was just as good!

guacamole egg salad 7I love a salad that I can enjoy in multiple ways.  This, my friends, is a good one.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)

    Hardboiled egg yolks freak me out! They’re so dry and chalky.

    I love anything with avocado, too!

    I got really into making guac egg salad last year! So tasty and a great alternative to normal egg salad. I also mix my guac with tuna sometimes!

  • Lucie@FitSwissChick September 22, 2013, 2:37 pm

    Such a beautiful pic of you and your Dad! Enjoy your time!
    That saladcombo is SO good, I absolutely need to try it. Even better on toast!!

  • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats September 22, 2013, 3:12 pm

    This looks delicious!! I’ve been having egg in my salads recently and loving it so I need to give your recipe a go as it looks yummy! :)

    Enjoy the time with your dad.

    congrats on the marathon, to your dad and the salad looks good!

  • Becky @ Olives n Wine September 22, 2013, 7:13 pm

    Mmm… two of my favorite things – hard boiled eggs and guacamole! I bet this would be delicious in a lettuce wrap :)

    • cleaneatingveggiegirl September 22, 2013, 7:23 pm

      Great minds think alike! ;) That was my original plan, but the hearts of Romaine were not looking so pretty..so I just went with already chopped up Romaine.

    I love guacamole and boiled eggs, win win! I love your polka dot scarf too, so fun. Good luck to your dad!

  • Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog September 22, 2013, 9:21 pm

    Enjoy the time with your dad – hope the marathon went well. To me, guacamole has no season. This sounds tasty!

  • ahealthyhappyhome September 22, 2013, 11:10 pm

    I used to not be able to eat hard boiled eggs at all but lately can’t get enough! I even eat them plain now! So weird! I hate mayo so if I make egg salad or tuna salad I use avocados. So good!

    • cleaneatingveggiegirl September 23, 2013, 7:32 am

      I don’t like mayo either, so using avocado is the perfect solution! I do, however, love vegan “mayo.” Weird? ;)

    hope you had a wonderful time with the dad :) this is a great lunch idea too.

  • Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl September 23, 2013, 9:39 am

    Love the looks of this salad and that picture of you and your dad is great! I hope the marathon went great….. I was thinking about him while I was running on Sunday. ;)

  • Alexis September 23, 2013, 10:26 am

    I’m obsessed with avocado in egg salad. It adds the most fabulous creamy texture! You look SO beautiful in that pic–have the best time with you daddio!

  • Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes September 23, 2013, 11:13 am

    Have a great time with your dad! I love egg and avocado together…super healthy and tastes good!

  • Meghan @ fitnesscrEATures September 23, 2013, 11:41 am

    How cool that your dad is running the marathon!
    And yes, guac is 100% on point year round (even if the avocados technically aren’t…. LOL!).

  • Jamie H. September 23, 2013, 12:25 pm

    Yum.Yum.Yum. This is the PERFECT recipe for me. Love avocados and egg whites! Hope your dad did well in the marathon :-)

  • Courtney @ Star Systemz September 23, 2013, 12:25 pm

    Yum! I love the idea of using avaocado vs. mayo, what a great idea! Love this! Thanks for sharing xo C

  • Her Happy Balance September 23, 2013, 1:44 pm

    Aww, you and your dad look GREAT in that photo! Hope the marathon went well for him :) I love using guac in place of mayo, especially with shrimp salad so I’m sure this egg salad version would be a hit. Happy Monday!

    • cleaneatingveggiegirl September 23, 2013, 2:07 pm

      Thank you!! And yes, you really don’t need mayo when you have avocado..it’s the best thing ever :).

  • sprint2thetable September 23, 2013, 2:14 pm

    Avocado is the BEST mayo replacer! I can’t believe how much I used to love mayo… ewwww!

    P.S. Your dad is so cool!

  • IHeartVegetables September 23, 2013, 2:48 pm

    Oh YUM! I’m not usually a huge fan of eggs, but I love avocado so much that I’m sure I would LOVE this!

  • Fit 'n' Well Mommy (@FitNWellMommy) September 23, 2013, 3:53 pm

    This looks good! I love combining hard boiled eggs with avocado in sandwiches and salads!

  • Kim @ Healthy Nest September 23, 2013, 4:57 pm

    Wow, great idea!! Totally keeping this one in my back pocket. :)

  • atasteofmadess September 23, 2013, 7:16 pm

    I have tried egg salad SO many different ways, but I have never tried guacamole egg salad. This looks SO good!

  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness September 23, 2013, 8:58 pm

    I love that your dad is there to run a marathon! I would say you have a pretty cool dad. This avocado and egg salad sounds great! I think it’s funny I love the runny yolk of fried eggs but don’t like the hard boiled egg yolk at all.

  • Tara September 23, 2013, 9:16 pm

    Woah, your dad is a badass for running a marathon! Glad you had fun this weekend. I love avocados and eggs so I automatically think that you have excellent taste. :)

  • makingthymeforhealth September 24, 2013, 5:52 pm

    Holy moly your dad is lightening fast!! That’s incredible time for a marathon.

    Your lentil based Philly Cheesesteak looked out of this world good! You should recreate that one!!

    All of your food looked incredible. I’m the same way when I order a veggie platter for dinner. I have to load up on bread too!

    • cleaneatingveggiegirl September 24, 2013, 7:18 pm

      I definitely SHOULD recreate it, though I have a feeling that it wouldn’t be quite as good! ;)

  • Katie (@runs4cupcakes) September 25, 2013, 12:54 pm

    I love egg salad and I love avocado –> perfect recipe for me!! Thanks for sharing.
