by Melissa Chichester

If you love egg salad but want something other than mayo, this versatile egg salad recipe is for you!

  • 4 hard-boiled eggs (cold)
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • ¼ cup relish (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • Salt to taste
