Avocado Egg Salad Wraps

Pin It!


I've always enjoyed a good egg salad sandwich ever since I was little. Some mayo and mustard and I was set. Today, I mixed it up and added avocado and pickle relish. I also subbed plain greek yogurt for the mayonnaise. There is a slightly different taste, but I didn't notice because I eat greek yogurt a lot. However, if you want to use mayo, go ahead!  Two places I always use mayo are BLTs and potato salad.  So if you always use mayo in egg salad, go ahead.  But try this first, just once, to see how amazing it is:) 
The saying "easy to make, impossible to break" often seems to apply to habits. Why does a habit seem to plague us for years?  One I still haven't mastered is nail biting. It used to be horrible. We tried painting my bails with this horrible tasting nail polish on my nails (at the recommendation of our orthodontist, oddly enough)  Then, when I got braces, (obviously by our orthodontist ... do you see a theme here?:) I couldn't chew my nails anymore. I do it occasionally now (I know, I know:) but not even close to what it was before.

Some habits are destructive, like chewing my nails. They could hurt my fingers and my teeth. Those kind of habits need to go.  Other habits, like hanging your towel backwards might not be worth going to the death over. Part of maturity is deciding what habits need to go, what aren't worth it, and which ones are worth keeping. Yes, keeping!  If you asked me what habits I have, I would automatically think bad ones. But in reality, much of my daily life is a habit. Making a list of my day ahead before I go to bed. Habit. Eating granola for breakfast. Habit.  Laughing with my mom.  Habit.

So what do you think. Habits: good or bad?  
(It's okay I'd you answer yes, I'm nodding my head over here, too:)

Avocado Egg Salad Wraps 
Recipe Source: The Sweet {Tooth} Life
Yield: 2 servings 

4 hard boiled eggs, peeled 
1/2 avocado 
3 tablespoons plain greek yogurt 
1 tablespoon mustard 
2 teaspoons pickle relish 
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon parsley (optional) 

Cut boiled eggs in half. Remove yolks and set in a bowl. Set whites aside. 

Mash yolks, greek yogurt, mustard, relish, salt, pepper, and parsley (if desired.)  Set aside.

  1. I think some habits are good, I mean routine can be good sometimes. I like it, actually, because I find super conforting.
    But I also bite my nails. I know it's a terrible thing to do, but I can't help it haha. It's an habit I should let go!
    These wraps look amazing, I've always wanted to give avocado egg salad a try! :-)

    1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts (I really appreciate you taking the time to read the post and then tell me what you think - really); they are so good! Yeah, nail biting . . . not good:) Let me know what you think of avo egg wraps; I think you will love them!

  2. I love egg salad with avocado! They are so good together. My Mom used to put that bad tasting stuff on her nails too! It never worked.

    1. I know! Why is that stuff so popular? Thanks Reeni! (BTW I love how you spell your name!:)

  3. I never thought to combine avocados with eggs...awesome idea!

    1. I really should've tried it earlier:) It is a winner!

  4. Love the addition of Greek yogurt and avocado to the egg salad. It is much healthier and I am sure it tastes much better. Some habits are good, some not so good. I would like to stop worrying about things that didn't happen yet. How about that for a challenge!
