Low Carb Avocado Egg Salad Wrap

I love egg salad and I love avocado. Combining them together is something I hadn’t thought of before, but I’m so glad I did. Wrap it up in some Iceberg Lettuce, and you’ve got yourself a delicious and filling Low Carb Avocado Egg Salad Wrap!

I’ve always loved egg salad. When I was younger, my mom would make egg salad, usually after Easter, with all of the leftover hard boiled eggs that my sister and I had colored. Naturally, her egg salad was dripping in mayonnaise, which while delicious, isn’t always the healthiest option.

The other day, I was craving egg salad, and I decided to throw some together. In my usual fashion, I used Greek Yogurt instead of mayonnaise and I threw in some Dijon mustard for some tangy spice. I also decided to add in some avocado for a little twist. The result? Deliciousness. Put it in some lettuce instead of bread – and you’ve got yourself a delicious Low Carb option!

How to Make a Low Carb Avocado Egg Salad Wrap

Using 6 eggs, peel, cool, chop, and set them aside in a mixing bowl. Add in Greek Yogurt, Lemon Juice, Dijon Mustard, smashed avocado, and some salt and pepper. Mix it up and set it aside.

Taking a head of Iceberg lettuce, carefully remove the 2-3 outer leaves. It can be difficult to get a leaf off in one piece, but do your best to at least have some bigger sections. Put this on your plate, and scoop into the center of your designated iceberg lettuce. Carefully roll up, and you’ve got yourself a wrap!

Picking good Avocados

I’m terrible at picking edible avocados. I’ve tried. But every single time I buy them, they’re either hard as rocks and take took long to ripen, or they’re overripe. I can never find that middle ground. HOWEVER. In the refrigerated section of the produce section at my local Stop & Shop, I discovered this nifty little item called “WHOLLY AVOCADO”. You can buy it already mixed as guacamole, or in my case, you can buy it just as Simply Avocado.

Variations

I’ve been dreaming all week of adding bacon onto this sandwich. Holy Moly, wouldn’t that be delicious? You can also go the traditional route and use Mayonnaise instead of Greek Yogurt. Add in a layer of tomato. Or combine it all together and make it a AEBLT – Avocado Egg Salad Bacon Lettuce Tomato Wrap…..The possibilities are limitless!

If you are just out of surgery, you can skip the lettuce and make this a pureed Avocado Egg Salad; it’s just as delicious. Or if you don’t want the avocado yet, check out my Pureed Deviled Egg Salad – you can make this non-pureed and wrap it up in lettuce, too!
