EGG SALAD WITH AVOCADO DRESSING







EGG SALAD WITH AVOCADO DRESSING

Avocado dressing and egg salad is one of my favorite ways of making a healthy egg salad.  It is also a great way to use up an avocado that has become too ripe to serve in the normal manner. Blend the avocado in this tasty dressing and no one will be any the wiser!  Delicious!


7 large hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1/2 cup chopped avocado, optional (125 mL)
4 slices bacon, cooked, chopped
2 tsp chopped, fresh cilantro, OR (10 mL)
  parsley (optional)
Avocado Dressing:
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and coarsely
  chopped
2 oz cream cheese (60 g)
1/4 cup sour cream (60 mL)
2 tbsp mayonnaise (30 mL)
1 tbsp lemon juice (15 mL)
2 tsp minced garlic (10 mL)
3/4 tsp salt (3 mL)
1/2 tsp black pepper (2 mL)

In medium bowl, place chopped hard-boiled eggs, red pepper and avocado, if using.  In blender, combine avocado, cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, salt and black pepper; blend until smooth.  Add to egg mixture and gently combine.  Top with cooked bacon bits and cilantro, OR parsley if using.
