This recipe is a re-visit to one of the most popular recipes on my site – the avocado egg salad. You all have embraced the avo egg salad so hard, that I figured I would bring it back with a minor twist. I added some fresh herbages in order to boost the flavor and fresh appeal. I know, I know…nothing revolutionary considering the recipe stayed exactly the same, but lemme tell you…some fresh basil, sage, rosemary, and thyme turns this thing into a whole new vegetarian animal.

All you do is mash up an avocado and a half, chop up your hard boiled eggs, and mix the two together with some cider vinegar (or lemon juice), sea salt, and freshly chopped herbs. You can use the egg salad on sandwiches with baby spinach, or add a scoop to your green salad for some protein.

    These avocado egg salad sandwiches pack a serious protein punch! Easter has never been a thing for me, and until this year, when I saw all the delicious brunch food, I didn’t miss it. Now I’m dying to do Easter brunch 🙂

    I do at least a dozen of eggs in my electric pressure cooker at a time and keep the hard cooked eggs on hand. I always use avocado in place of mayo for all my salad recipes and dressings. What I like about this one is the addition of the leafy green spices. I don’t eat any wheat products at all and I’ve lost 75 pounds since I went wheat free so I’ll not use the bread. But the rest of it sounds great. I call them hard cooked rather than hard boiled because the eggs don’t have to be boiled to cook them. The higher the temp, the more likely the ugly dark ring around the yolk from “boiling” them.

    You are such a clever little devil thinking to post a recipe that includes hard boiled eggs the day after Easter. Why can’t my brain work that way? Why?!

    I think the added herbage sounds amazing and you know I am all about eating those vegetarian animals. 😉
