Egg, Avocado, Apple Salad

Have you guys heard of Secret Recipe Club? I have been participating for the last few months and it’s been a great way for me to find new blogs and try new recipes. It’s been a ton of fun and I highly recommend joining if you haven’t already.

This month, I was happy to find I was paired with another blogger I had never heard of – From Arepas to Zwetschgen! I searched through the various posts and saw tons of great salad and sandwich recipes. I chose this recipe because we had some delicious lettuce, red onion, and cherry tomatoes in our CSA box last week.

This salad was amazingly delicious and filling. The pecans gave a nice crunch to the salad and the avocado and hard boiled egg gave the salad some heft and creaminess. I dressed the salad with some olive oil and balsalmic vinegar. Hubby commented that this salad would be great with some grilled chicken on top as well.

    Cabbage is everywhere for St. Patrick’s Day! I love boiled cabbage, though for years I avoided it. This looks like a way to really infuse some crazy flavor into it!

    I love cabbage recipes. And anything with bacon is always a plus! Will be trying this soon.

      So glad you liked it!

      I haven’t been to BonBonerie yet. I will definitely have to check them out. I’ve also never made opera cream cake either…
