Not Your Momma’s Egg Salad 

Did you grow up eating egg salad? I definitely did! It was a staple at summer cookouts, family gatherings, and barbecues. 

However, if I’m being honest, I’m not a huge fan of classic egg salad recipes. There’s just something about the combination of mayonnaise and eggs I don’t love. I can’t be the only one, right? 

But when you swap the mayo for avocado, I’m in love! This avocado egg salad recipe is a healthy step up from the original. Even better, it comes together with only four ingredients.

With minimal prep time, you can whip up a big batch in minutes and enjoy it for days. Do recipes get better than that?

Ingredients

Below is an overview of the ingredients and instructions for this recipe. Be sure to scroll down to the recipe card below for the complete details and nutrition information! 

  • Eggs – Use hardboiled eggs. 
  • Ripe Avocado – Look for avocados that are dark green, free from cuts, and give just slightly when squeezed. 
  • Lime Juice – This adds a citrusy flavor and prevents the avocado from browning. Freshly squeezed is best! 
  • Seasoning – I love to use everything but the bagel seasoning. However, feel free to experiment with any herbs and spices you like best. You can never go wrong with salt and pepper or fresh herbs. Chop fresh cilantro or parsley, and stir it into the mix for added freshness.

Note: For a super creamy avocado egg salad recipe, mash the avocado well. Also, feel free to stir in Greek yogurt, too!

How to Make Healthy Egg Salad with Avocado

Before you begin, make sure to boil the eggs or make hard-boiled eggs in an Instant Pot. Then, peel them and have them ready to go!

  1. Add all the ingredients to a bowl.
  2. Mix to combine. 
  3. Serve, and enjoy! 

Serving Suggestions

I like to serve this avocado and egg salad as a dip with crackers, celery, carrots, and celery sticks for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. However, you can also enjoy it as avocado egg salad sandwiches. Or, serve it over lettuce as a salad!

How to Store

You can transfer leftovers to an airtight container, and store them in the fridge for up to two days.

Note that the longer the salad sits, the more likely it is to turn brown. To help prevent this, I like to add extra lime or lemon juice. Then, I place a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the salad before I store it!
