Egg salad, but with coconuts!

Have you ever seen the Mexican dudes standing on street corners around LA holding a coconut with a straw sticking out of it in each hand?  A sighting is my cue to pull the eff over.  You can get two of them for a fiver, ready to drink.  Coconut water is practically a miracle beverage and contains more electrolytes than any sports drink.  I hereby make a motion to rename it Jesus Juice.

It seems a shame to throw away the lovely coco after slaking my thirst with the drink within, so I always keep the empty coconut in the fridge and say I’m gonna do something with it.  Then it sits there for a month til it is well and truly rotten, after which time I finally throw it away.  But not this time, Buster!

I recalled that one of my fave health blogs, Renegade Health, posted a recipe a while back for egg salad without the eggs, so I got out my tomato butt remover
and scraped out all the meat (AKA white stuff that is not shell) and popped it into the recipe below.  Pulse it all up in your food processor and serve over a bed of greens or roll some up in a romaine leaf.  Redonk.
