Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich

Avocados and Greek yogurt replace mayonnaise traditionally used in egg salad for good fats and a little extra protein. Make the avocado egg salad within two hours of eating to avoid browning.

Nutrition Tip: Avocado makes a healthy substitute for heart-healthy fats and provides plenty of creaminess and nutrients so you won’t miss the mayo.
