Avocado Egg Salad

We kicked up egg salad a notch by adding creamy avocado. We still kept the mayonnaise because, well, it’s delicious. We also added minced shallot, sweet relish, cilantro, dijon mustard, and spices paprika and cumin. It’s the perfect salad for topping a toasted bagel or sandwiching between two pieces of bread. Feel free to add some lettuce as your base.

Let’s talk about hard boiling eggs. There are so many methods—boiling, baking, or steaming. My preferred method is steaming. Once I tried Alton Brown’s process I’ve never turned back. Steam eggs for 12 min., and then put them in an ice bath to cool—they come out perfect every time. Enjoy!
