Avocado and Egg Salad Sandwich

Don't you just get a bit tired of the same old sandwich? 

Well if you do my daughter and I created this healthy and colorful sandwich to 

share!  

Did you know that the Avocado is such a healthy substitute for mayo?  





Healthy and Interesting Facts about the Avocado

They are rich in potassium
High in vitamin k (helps protect our bones)
Rich in magnesium, calcium and iron
Good Fat
90 % of the Hass Avocado are grown in California


I am crazy over avocados! 

They are just so perfect! 

Not watery, or mushy just perfectly firm and dense-you are going to love this sandwich! 

My home is Texas-so I like my avocado and egg salad sandwich spiced up a tad!  



Avocado and Egg Salad Sandwich

Ingredients: Make 2 generous sandwiches

1 ripe avocado- cubed
2 hard boiled eggs, cooled and cubed
1 tablespoon vidallia sweet onion finely diced
1/8 cup blue cheese/feta
2 teaspoon Salsa Picante hot sauce 
salt and pepper to taste


It is the eggs, and avocado that are the basis of this sandwich-you could add 

tomatoes, celery, sprouts, cucumber a number of healthy choices are 

available. If spicy is not your thing-do not add Picante.





All of these wonderful ingredients are just about to be mixed together!



Spread avocado and egg salad on your choice of bread ( I love whole wheat) 

garnish with your favorite fruit and you have nutrition and perfection in one 

bite!
Hope you enjoy this healthy and satisfying recipe!
