  4. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  5. 1/8 teaspoon salt
  6. 8 hard-boiled eggs (see Tip)
  7. 1 ripe avocado, cubed

  9. 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

Preparation

  1. Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, garlic powder, pepper and salt in a medium bowl.

Tips & Notes

  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
  • Tip: To hard-boil eggs, place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and cover the eggs with ice-cold water. Let stand until cool enough to handle before peeling.
