Avocado-Egg Whites Salad

A recent episode of 'Agents of shield' on Star World had agents May and Skye discussing their feelings about Ward's betrayal. On being asked why she did not feel any anger, May replied that though she felt very angry with Ward, she would not waste her energies on throwing a tantrum and would rather channelize it and wait to take down her adversary. It just made me think how many of us would do something like that. Most of us are ready to throw a fit and get into confrontations even at a perceived slight. And finally we end up looking stupid. Maybe it is something I will try to implement in my personal life.

Today's recipe is a delicious and healthy salad for the weight watchers !! The whites are a great source of protein and the avocado is full of healthy fats. One can also add some crunchy lettuce , celery or cucumber to the salad to make it more filling. To make a complete meal, sandwich some between 2 slices of wholegrain bread or have it wrapped in a tortilla/quesadilla. Read on  -

Preparation Time - 12 mins

Ingredients -

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 egg whites ( boiled and separated from the yolks )
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp mustard sauce
  • freshly ground pepper
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Preparation - Boil the eggs for 10-12 mins. Remove from flame and allow to cool. Remove the shells and separate the whites.

Cut the onion into thin slices and marinate for a while with the vinegar and salt.

Halve the avocado and scoop out the flesh. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Add the mayonnaise, mustard sauce, lemon juice, pepper and salt. Mash together (almost to the consistency of a Guacamole).

Add the chopped/lightly mashed egg whites and onions (discard any liquid though). Mix gently.

Chill for 20 mins before serving.
