What makes this egg salad healthy?
Thought you would never ask! Hard boiled eggs are fantastic sources of high quality protein. Not to mention they are filled with Vitamin B2, B12 and Vitamin A. Eggs are inexpensive, easy to prepare, and low in calories. You can find them already hard boiled in most grocery stores. But, it’s easy to make your own, Here are my tips on making the perfect hard boiled eggs.
Next, we add in some heart-healthy avocado for taste and color. Instead of the typical mayonnaise, I subbed in some hummus for creaminess. I have scooped this delicious blend into bell pepper boats instead of bread to reduce the carbs and the calories.
Can I make this in advance?
Yes! You can prepare this avocado hummus egg salad in advance, refrigerated, and enjoyed for up to 3 days. Remember to squeeze some lemon or lime into your recipe to keep the avocado from turning brown.
What are some other ways to serve this egg salad?
The traditional sandwich route always works. Serving with crackers, rice cakes, in a wrap, or on top of a big green salad are all delish options. Looking for a breakfast option? It would be delish on a piece of toast or on a bagel.
