Green eggs and ham,
Could it be?
A whole new way
to enjoy thee?

Well, yes it is!
And truth be told,
It's creamy goodness
To behold.

I sure do like it,
Sam I am.
I like this kind
Of green eggs and ham!


I guess my brain's gearing up to get back to my first graders ... I just couldn't resist writing this little Green Eggs and Ham ditty for this one.  And truth be told, ... though I can hear those skeptics out there ... this Avocado Egg Salad is really, really good!

The creaminess of the mashed avocado means you can add less mayonnaise than's used in traditional egg salad and still get a great texture.  Or, skip the mayo altogether an use plain yogurt instead.  Which is great if you happen to not be a mayo fan.

Red wine vinegar adds fabulous flavor to the Avocado Egg Salad, and helps keep the avocado from turning brownish ... This can keep in the refrigerator for a couple of days, and while it won't turn brownish because of the vinegar, the color does change a bit to different shades of greenish.  Just so you know what to expect.  

This will definitely be appearing in my lunchbox line-up this coming school year!

Now come on ... Be daring.  Give this a try.  

You'll be surprised ... in a good way.
