Radish Avacado Fennel Egg Salad

One of my girlfriends is trying to eat Paleo.

If you're not familiar with the paleo diet, here's a quick blurb from wiki:
The paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet or paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a modern nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various hominid species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic era—a period of about 2.5 million years which ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture and grain-based diets. In common usage, such terms as the "Paleolithic diet" also refer to the actual ancestral human diet.

I know I'd never be able to adhere to such a diet, though I do agree that everyone needs to eliminate processed foods as much as possible.

Anyhoo...this was one of her recipes. She doesn't use mayo. I added a little bit but it definitely would have been good without it.

4 hard boiled eggs, cooled and chopped
1 avocado, diced
1/4 cup fennel bulb, julienned into 1/2 inch matchsticks
1/4 cup radish, finely diced
1/4 cup chives, finely chopped
1 tsp. lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
a heaping tablespoon of mayo or greek yogurt if you want a smoother texture

Coincidentally, I had received most of the ingredients needed in my Farm Fresh to You Box the day before.

I also made some roasted veggies, simply tossed with a bit of olive oil and kosher salt.
I used the carrots, leftover fennel and asparagus from my box and included some zucchini and yukon gold potatoes.
