Avocado egg salad recipe

I love avocados. A lot! But I promise you there is no one in the world that loves them more than the Toddler. This child sees an avocado, grabs for it, and proceeds to eat an entire avocado sans anything - just like you would an apple. Who does that? 

My son, that's who! Anyhow, I knew when I saw some fantastic avocados on sale at the market that it was definitely necessary to stock up and get creative! This avocado egg salad recipe was the first of several avo meals that I had made up for us this past week. Not only did the Toddler get his fix, but I have to admit, my taste buds were pretty thrilled to be able to get some, as well. Not that my son really wanted to share or anything, but I did sneak some for myself. No one else in the house likes them, so at least they only needed to be divided between the two of us ;)

This can also be a paleo recipe, if you skip the wrap and corn!

I also smashed more avocado and added more asparagus to our wraps and it was absolutely fabulous! The Toddler ate his wrap immediately demanded more. I guess that means they really were good!
