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.
IS AVOCADO EGG SALAD LOW CARB?
It is - depending on how you serve it. You could serve on low carb bread, in a low carb wrap or on a lettuce leaf to keep it low in carbohydrates. Also, the lemon juice is optional in this but it helps to keep the avocado from browning too quickly.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)
- hard-boiled eggs
- ripe avocados
- ranch seasoning mix
- salt and pepper
- mayonnaise (or Greek yogurt)
HOW TO MAKE AVOCADO EGG SALAD:
Chop the hard-boiled eggs. Set aside.
Dice avocados and place in a medium-sized bowl. It's easiest to cut the avocado while it is in the skin. Slice, then scoop out with a spoon.
Squeeze fresh lemon juice on avocados (This will keep them from turning brown too quickly.) Then gently stir.
Add in chopped eggs, diced shallot, ranch seasoning and mayonnaise. Stir well.
Taste for seasoning then add salt and pepper, to taste.
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!
