RANCH AVOCADO EGG SALAD
Ranch Avocado Egg Salad recipe is made with avocados, hardboiled eggs, shallot, ranch seasoning, mayonnaise. Low carb too! Serve as a wrap, in a sandwich, on toast or on lettuce! Honestly, it looks so ugly but the taste is AMAZING! I promise!
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF AN AVOCADO IS RIPE?
There are a few general tips when picking out avocados. First, you want to look for darker colored avocados – not black. Black means it’s probably overripe. You also don’t want a lighter green avocado. That means it’s underripe. Also, try removing the stem end. If it’s hard to remove, it’s not ready yet. If it removes easily, and is green underneath, then it’s ready. If you remove the end and it’s brown or dark, it’s overripe and you’re probably gonna have brown spots inside.Below is the avocado that was dark in color (not black) with a stem end that was easily removed and was green underneath.
This was the avocado that had started to turn black and had a dark brown stem end. Only the end of this had gone brown so I ended up cutting the brown out and using the rest. However, it’s a good rule of thumb to follow when shopping for avocados.
LOW CARB AND DELICIOUS
Avocados are full of delicious and healthy fats. Eggs are packed with protein! So this makes a perfect low carb lunch. Also, for a bit more color, protein and flavor, try adding some cooked and crumbled bacon to the mix.
THE BEST AVOCADO EGG SALAD!
I like to use shallots instead of onions because they are milder in flavor and have a slight taste of garlic too. In addition, the ranch seasoning really takes it over the top! I absolutely love Penzey’s Ranch Seasoning (not sponsored.) It is my favorite ranch seasoning when I am out of my HOMEMADE RANCH SEASONING!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
ranch seasoning mix
salt & pepper
mayonnaise (or Greek yogurt)
STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE RANCH AVOCADO EGG SALAD:
Chop the hard-boiled eggs. Set aside.
Serve in a sandwich, on toast, in a wrap or on lettuce.
This isn’t the prettiest salad. So, if you want, you can sprinkle it with some paprika for a bit of color. But I promise, the taste is amazing!
