I make it as is and enjoyed it. It was a nice change from the standard egg salad recipe I am use to making.

Pretty yummy base recipe. I added jalepeno, chopped bell pepper, and dill instead of chives. I added a generous amount of salt, and extra citrus. Between the eggs and the avocado, the recipe needs it. I enjoyed it and will using it again.
