We love egg salad. In fact, we’ve shared our go-to egg salad recipe before. We really don’t like to add too many ingredients to it — a little mayo, some celery and fresh herbs are all we need. That is until we stumbled across the idea of adding avocado to it. The thought of combining two of our favorite ingredients into one creamy and easy egg salad made us giddy.

Looking for a mayo-free version, try swapping it out for nonfat or low-fat yogurt or just stick to avocado and leave the mayonnaise out completely.

When you stir everything together, try to keep things a little chunky. Then, season with salt and pepper and enjoy as you would any egg salad. We like to make open-faced sandwiches, but spooning this on top of a big salad would be delicious.

Easy Avocado Egg Salad Recipe

  • TOTAL

This egg salad combines two of our favorite things: eggs and avocado. In addition to the avocado, we add a little mayonnaise for moisture, celery for crunch, fresh herbs and a small amount of lemon juice to brighten things up.

Makes approximately 2 servings

You Will Need

1 medium avocado, pitted and peeled

2 tablespoons mayonnaise, or Greek yogurt (try our homemade mayonnaise recipe)

1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

4 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped

1 medium-length celery stalk, finely chopped (about 3 tablespoons)

1 tablespoon finely chopped chives, parsley or dill

Salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

    Mash avocado, mayonnaise and lemon juice together in a medium bowl. Stir in the eggs, celery and chives. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. (Egg salad is best eaten the same day as making).

Adam and Joanne's Tips

  • To make hard-cooked (hard-boiled) eggs, in a saucepan, cover eggs with 1 inch (2 1/2 cm) of cold water, bring to a boil then immediately remove from heat and cover with lid. Let eggs stand, covered in the hot water for 12 minutes. Then plunge eggs into ice cold water to stop the cooking. A full tutorial with photographs can be found here: How to Cook Hard Boiled Eggs.

    This recipe sounds so delish, one of my friends tried it and raved about it so thought I would make some to have for a healthier breakfast…my question thought is: if I prep it the night before, will the lemon juice help keep the avocado from browning? or this recipe best prepared and ate on the same day? Thanks!

    I love egg salad but hate mayonnaise and this recipe was great when made with greek yogurt. It will definitely be used again. Thank you!

    This was delicious! I used homemade Greek yogurt and 2 tsp lime juice. Followed the recipe and added some green onions and chopped apple to the mix. Spoon onto lettuce cups topped with sprinkled Chipotle Chile Pepper! So good and satisfying!
    Will be making these again. Thanks!

    My mother would make a recipe like this but you don’t mash the avocado…you cube it

    1 avocado cubed
    2 hard-boiled eggs cubed
    1/2 cup chopped lettuce
    1 stick of celery
    a little cilantro (you decide how much)
    1 lemon juiced
    teaspoon of lemon zest
    salt
    pepper

    mix and eat….not bread needed…great for dieters
