Notes

Storage: For best results, consume the avocado egg salad immediately after making since the avocado will oxidize quickly. If you have leftovers, wrap the bowl with a saran wrap, making sure that wrap is touching the salad. This will help minimize the oxidation process. 
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.
  • Instead of Greek Yogurt, you can use regular yogurt, sour cream or leave it out all together.
  • You can switch the dijon mustard to yellow mustard, or leave it out.
  • Use any herbs you'd like instead of chives.
* Please note the nutrition label does not include the bread or additional toppings.
