Avocado egg salad sandwich
We are a big fan of avocados. When we visit any mexican restaurant, our first preference would be to order guacamole along with any other dishes that has avocados in it. Even when I buy avocados for home, guacamole would be my first choice. Last time, Gj had bought plenty of avocados and all were ripen at the same time. One day, I made guacamole, next day I made avocado milkshake, the day after next I made avocado chappathi and then I had two more avocados left. I wanted to try out something different.
When I looked for avocado recipes, I bumped upon this avocado egg salad sandwich on edible garden. I loved the pictures. I had all the ingredients at home. Then, what is the need to wait? I tried it out and it came out very well. First time when I made this recipe, I used all the ingredients listed in the recipe. It came out very well. Another time, I made the same recipe omitting boiled eggs, avocados, coriander leaves, and spring onions (I actually forgot to boil the eggs). Again, this combo also came out very well. This recipe can be adapted to your taste. Try it out and you will know!

Greens like watercress leaves, baby spinach etc. – a small bunch. I used salad spinach.

Wash and chop the salad spinach. Crumble the boiled eggs with a fork. In a mixing bowl, add the avocado flesh, chopped salad spinach, crumbled eggs, coriander leaves, spring onions, salt, pepper, and any salad dressing. Mix well. Finally, add lemon juice. Mix again.
