Acocado + Egg Salad Lettuce Boats (Repost)

If you have extra hard-boiled eggs left over from the weekend, are they safe to eat?*

If the eggs weren't out of the fridge for more than 2 hours, and are not cracked anywhere, they should be ok to eat. And if you'd like to make egg salad, here's a delicious recipe that's good enough to repost:

So beautiful. So delicious. So easy. Sometimes you forget just how good a simple dish can be.

Paleo Magazine featured this recipe in their March issue. It's a keeper, and a perfect way to use up extra hard boiled eggs. But don't wait just for that - treat yourself soon for a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Ingredients:

6 large eggs


1 ripe avocado, peeled, cored, and mashed with a potato masher
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
1/4 cup finely chopped flat parsley
1 tablespoon mayonaise, preferably Vegenaise w/ grape seed oil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, preferably Edmond Fallot
Juice of 1 lemon

Salt & Pepper to taste

1 head red-leaf lettuce, for serving

Optional toppings: sprouts, shredded carrots, chopped herbs

Instructions:

1. In a dutch oven, cover the eggs with 1” of water, and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat, put on a lid, and let the eggs sit for 12 minutes. With a slotted spoon, place cooked eggs in a bowl of cold water to cool down. (Note: or use your favorite way to make hard boiled eggs.)


2. Peel the cooled eggs. Coarsely chop the eggs and put in a medium bowl.

3. Add the avocado, green onions, parsley, mayonnaise, mustard and lemon juice. Mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste. 

4. Place egg salad on individual lettuce leaves to serve.

Makes 8 lettuce cups.
