Paleo Egg Salad

My new egg salad obsession started when we got to for Spring Training. As some of you know I gave up meat for lent. I’m not going totally vegan because I have kept fish and eggs in my diet, easy sources of protein. To be honest, I haven’t missed meat at all since making this diet change. I haven’t eaten red meat in 5 years and just started eating bacon about 2 years ago. However, on day one in Scottsdale Andrew and I stopped at a Kosher Deli to grab a sandwich. That’s when I was faced with my first meatless dilemma… what the heck do I order at a sandwich shop! I don’t like cheese, never have, so grilled cheese was out and a vegetarian sandwich without cheese…well I might as well eat a salad.  I love tuna but tuna salad sandwiches have never been my thing. The next thing I saw on the menu was an egg salad sandwich… and that was intriguing. So I ordered it… and it was good, REALLY good! So good that I went out and bought some eggs, boiled them and made my own homemade healthy egg salad! The recipe is below!

From the Cutting Board:

-serving size, 3

¼ red onion (green onion works well too!)

6 eggs boiled

2-3 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 avocado (mashed)

1 tsp garlic

1/2 lemon, juiced

2 pickle spears, chopped

1 celery stick, chopped

½ tsp red chili flakes

Sriracha, paprika, salt & pepper to taste

To the Mixing Bowl:

First make the avocado mash… which is sort of the glue of this recipe. Mash 1 avocado, squeeze half a lemon, add the chopped red onion, celery, pickles, garlic, mustard & mix. Next peel and dice the hardboiled eggs and add them to the avocado mixture. Finally drizzle the Sriracha, the red chili flakes, paprika, salt & pepper and blend together with a large spoon.  Voila healthy & seriously yummy egg salad!! 

If your anything like me, you’ll just eat the egg salad by the spoon full… But if that’s not your style… carrots, red peppers, and crackers make great dippers. And if you are looking for something even more substantial, try spreading the egg salad on a piece of Ezekiel toast!

Enjoy!
