Egg Salad and Chicken salad

I have been so excited to share these two great summer recipes with you... INTERNET has been down since Monday and finally got fixed today! YAY!!! Thanks to helpful neighbors!!! :)

A few years ago, I remember hearing how wonderful Avocado was. I was already a huge fan but I remember hearing that if you were trying to lose weight to switch mayo to avocado. Avocado has the same texture and taste as mayo. I have been adding mixed avocado to sandwiches or salads that once called for mayo.

This weekend I made one of my favorites!!!!

EGG Salad with Avocado
 So easy and so quick! You can make it real smooth in a food processor or you can leave it chunky and just eat it out of the bowl or top some lettuce and if you want even make a sandwich on bread or lettuce. Whatever you want to do with this mixture -- possibilities are endless!

The Ingredients:
Hard boiled eggs
Olive Oil
Pepper and a tiny bit of salt

I made a large batch. 8 hard boiled eggs and one avocado.

The Directions:
Chop up the hard boiled eggs and add in avocado and continue to mash and mix. Add Olive Oil to help smooth and seasoning with salt and pepper.

If you want a smoother mixture use food processor!

Another summer favorite --- Chicken and Avocado Salad
Chicken pieces
1 avocado
olive oil
salt and pepper

The Ingredients:
First cut the chicken into the size pieces you desire. Slice and cut the avocado. Mix both in a bowl and add Lemon, Olive Oil and seasonings.

You can add red onion in here but I do not always have red onion on hand.

Again, the possibilities are endless on these two quick summer lunch/dinners.
