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.

By the way, if you are 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

  • PREP
  • COOK

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 light 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


    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 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.

    Add a little vinager to your boiling water. Your eggs will be so easy to peel.

    I am normally not a fan of egg salad, but I had boiled eggs, avocados, and not much else so I stumbled across this recipe. I loved it! The avocado was a great combo. Instead of dill seasoning I cut up dill pickles, then did Basil and parsley for the herbs. I will definitely make it again.
