This healthy egg salad recipe with avocado has become my go-to lunch! It’s delicious in a pita, tastes great wrapped up in a lettuce leaf, and can be served “inside-out”.
What’s inside-out? Leave out the celery when making the egg salad. Then stuff the egg salad in the celery to serve. Yummy.
This recipe calls for grated red onion. I think it is the key to the salad. It imparts the flavor of the onion but you don’t end up biting into a piece of onion. Know what I mean?
Finally, when it comes to seasoning the salad with salt and pepper, this is my trick.
