Avocado Egg Salad Sandwiches

I don't know about you, but I love egg salad sandwiches.  I grew up with my Mom's recipe with hard boiled eggs mashed with mayo, and in the last few years have grown to enjoy a version that a local lunchery offers (that slices the hard boiled eggs and adds in slices of tomatoes too).  Having said that, I never make egg salad sandwiches.  Until I came across this recipe...then I decided that I needed make some!  Here is the recipe:

2 hard boiled eggs (shells off)
Avocado Egg Salad Sandwiches | Addicted to Recipes

1/2 avocado
1 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
1/4 red pepper, diced
1/2 teaspoon red hot sauce (or more or less, depending on your preference)
salt and pepper to taste

Put the first four ingredients into a bowl and mash together until you reach your desired consistency.  Add in the hot sauce, salt and pepper.  Mix, taste and adjust if needed.

Spoon the avocado egg salad into a wrap or onto your sandwich bread, top with coleslaw greens or fresh lettuce, and enjoy!

I really liked this version of egg salad sandwiches.  The addition of the avocado was good (and good for you!) and changing up the mayo for a little Greek yogurt was also tasty.  I had mine in a wrap and I added in  bagged coleslaw to add some crunch, and I am super happy that I did!  I had some leftover mix which I gave to our toddler, who just gobbled it up - yippee!
