Sunday Sides~ Avocado

This week's Sunday Side Dish is from Shannon in San Diego~ She grew up with grandparents in a California paradise. Avocado tree's all around. So natrally she would pick a recipe with avocados.Grandma's Egg Salad
Hard Boiled Egg
A Little Mayo
Onion Salt (or regular salt)

"Basically, smash these four things up until it is good and mashed. You can use more egg, more avocado, whatever. I think it is probably one avocado to 2 eggs. She says you don't need to add mayo even, unless you want to.

She used to put it on HomePride Buttertop bread for me which I adored because lets face it that is not really bread, it is junk food. Use whatever kind of bread you want. A hearty wheat would be good... or sourdough."
I love Shannon for her simplicity... be it an egg salad sandwich or a small Group Tour that includes Grapes and Hops. She is the best.
My sandwich was piled high with fresh Alabama tomatoes on a whole wheat sandwich thin.
Awesome Sunday Side!
Y'all enjoy~

Well here is an "aha moment". I would never have thought to add avocado to egg salad, but it makes perfect sense.

What's not to love... avacado and egg salad! The fresh tomato is like icing on the cake!

I am just about to force myself to go to Weight Watchers... because I cannot resist things just like this! LOL!

Mmm...I love avocados and would not have put them with egg salad. It sounds delicious and I am going to try this out. Looks so good. Thanks!

Noni~ I think this was only 3 WW points. I didn't add mayo... and didn't miss it at all.
Glad y'all enjoyed it!

Well that looks fabulous! I wouldn't have thought to add the avocado, but I'm loving the thoughts of it!

A big southern "Yea-ow-wee" on that sandwich! I love eating avocado alone as a snack with salsa!
