Avocado Egg Salad Toast

Avocado Egg Salad Toast

Egg salad is one of those tricky foods that seems healthy. It’s made from eggs and it’s got the word salad right there in the name, but mayonnaise is the glue that holds it together and turns it into the creamy spread you know and love.

But you know what makes a great substitution for mayo? Mashed avocado. It provides the same creamy texture, with a healthy dose of monounsaturated fat (that’s the good kind) and gives you another twist on avocado toast. We added lemon juice to bring a touch of bright acidity to the dish and to help prevent the avocado from turning brown.

To add a finishing touch to this dish, we topped the Egg Salad Avocado Toast with a small handful of watercress, the delicate leaves and crunchy stems of which add a peppery flavor. Watercress is so good for you, it earned the top spot as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s most nutrient-dense fruit or vegetable most strongly associated with reduced chronic disease risk. Looks like those Brits were onto something with their tea sandwiches. If you can’t find watercress, substitute arugula or baby spinach, which also made the list.

Here are a few other variations to try: Dress up the avocado egg salad with some fresh, cracked pepper or a sprinkle of smoked paprika. Cut up some cherry tomatoes, green onions, or jalapeño slices and throw them into the mix. Swap out the toast for a whole grain tortilla and top it with salsa. Skip the toast and dip into the salad with whole grain crackers, endive leaves, or celery stalks. Going grainless? Enjoy it in lettuce cups!
