You guys, I am really excited about this one.

For some reason I don't really get a craving for eggs very often. So when I say I think I could eat this egg salad all the time, that's a big deal.

Recently I heard someone mention something in passing about apples with egg salad, and that made me want to try it immediately. I like apples in salads, so why not with egg salad? Why I hadn't ever heard of this before, I don't know.

When I ran to the kitchen to start making some, I realized that I didn't have any mayonnaise. And I got sad. Then I realized I could substitute avocado, and I was happy again.

Avocado always makes me happy.

You don't have to top off with paprika (I tried it without – it still tastes good!), but I added some just because that's what I think of as a traditional egg salad spice.

My thought was I would have some left over for lunches this week. But I may or may not have eaten the entire 4 servings in less than 24 hours.

A little bit of added yogurt helped with the consistency and blended the avocado in with the eggs a little better.

I used regular vanilla yogurt, but I've heard of other people using greek yogurt if you want to go fancy.

Top it off with a pinch of paprika and you've got yourself a healthy (and delicious!) egg salad.

Thanks Camille, I hope you try it! I love the crunch it gives to the salad (and of course the fact that it makes it even healthier!)
