Instructions

  • 2 small avocados, pitted, peeled, and diced
  • 6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and diced
  • 4 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt (or heavy cream)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Salt and fresh pepper, to taste

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare the Avocado and Eggs Begin by pitting, peeling, and dicing the avocados. Next, peel and dice the hard-boiled eggs. These two ingredients will form the creamy base of our salad, providing a satisfying texture and rich flavor.

Step 2: Add the Crispy Bacon What’s a barbecue without some crispy bacon? Take your pre-cooked bacon strips and crumble them into the avocado and egg mixture. The smoky flavor of the bacon will complement the creamy avocado and savory eggs, taking this salad to the next level.

Step 3: Create the Creamy Dressing In a small bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt (or heavy cream), mayonnaise (if using), and fresh lemon juice. This creamy dressing will bind all the ingredients together while adding a tangy kick to the salad. Feel free to adjust the amount of lemon juice to suit your taste preferences.

Step 4: Incorporate Fresh Cilantro Chop up some fresh cilantro and add it to the salad mixture. The vibrant green color and citrusy flavor of the cilantro will enhance the overall freshness of the dish, balancing out the richness of the avocado, eggs, and bacon.

Step 5: Season to Perfection Season the salad with salt and fresh pepper to taste. The salt will help bring out the flavors of the ingredients, while the pepper will add a subtle hint of spice. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your seasonings – feel free to add other herbs and spices to customize the flavor to your liking.

Step 6: Mix it Up! Gently fold all the ingredients together until well combined. Be careful not to mash the avocados too much – you want to maintain some of their creamy texture for the perfect bite.

Step 7: Serve and Enjoy! Your Creamy Avocado Egg Salad with Crispy Bacon is now ready to be devoured! Serve it up on toasted bread for a classic sandwich, or enjoy it as a topping for salads. However you choose to indulge, one thing’s for sure – this dish is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser at your next barbecue.
