green egg salad sandwich

dr. seuss would approve!
I love adding avocado slices to sandwiches - gives it a creamy texture and it's good for you!  My friends Peter and Marina mentioned that they mash avocados into canned tuna to make tuna salad sandwiches...which eliminates the need for mayo.  Amazing!  It makes the middle of your sandwich look slightly green but you hardly taste the difference since the avocado is so mild. The creaminess of the avocado is a great mayo substitute, plus it has way more nutrients and good fats.   Ryan loves egg salad sandwiches, and loves this green version no less.

what you need:
*makes 2 sandwiches
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 large avocado
  • 1 green onion
  • 3 sprigs parsley
  • sliced tomatoes
  • one small lemon wedge 
  • salt and pepper
  • your favourite bread or wrap
what to do:
  1. Place eggs in a pot with cold water, on high heat on stove top.  Set a timer for 15 min.  Once the water boils, reduce to medium.  
  2. Meanwhile, thinly slice green onion, roughly chop parsley, slice tomatoes, and mash the avocado.  Squirt a small amount of lemon juice onto the mashed avocado to prevent it from browning.
  3. When 15 minutes is up, drain eggs and immediately cool them down with cold water.  
  4. Peel eggs and then mash them roughly with a fork, add avocados, green onions, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.  Build your sandwich or wrap and enjoy!
