Avocado everything is literally…everywhere. From avocado toast, avocado tacos to even avocado pickles…it’s all around. Instagram and Pinterest are filled to every corner with avocado recipes and products. So when it comes to avocado’s you could say I’m late to the party.

To make this salad, I started with one of my favorite egg salad recipes and adapted it to replace most of the mayonnaise with avocado. Lots of herbs are included for the whole healthy and good for you thing. I love mayonnaise…but little less is probably better, right?

How To Make Avocado Egg Salad

This healthy salad is totally easy to make. The most time consuming part is the hard-boiled eggs. The super simple method I’ve found (besides buying them already peeled at the grocery) is to use the Instant Pot to make an egg loaf. After that, it’s just slicing and mixing.

  1. Add all the ingredients to a medium mixing bowl. Gently stir (to not smash up the eggs) until well blended.
  2. Pile onto a sandwich roll, bread or lettuce leaf (keto friendly) and enjoy!

Ingredients for Avocado Egg Salad

Eggs – the base ingredient of this salad. Use your favorite method for making hard boiled, peeled and chopped eggs.

Avocado – super healthy and substitutes for most of the mayonnaise found in classic egg salad.

Green Onions – adds a mild onion flavor that’s doesn’t overpower the other ingredients.

Parsley – adds fresh herb flavor and color.

Thyme – distinctive flavor that pairs well with both eggs and avocado.

Mayonnaise – use a light hand with the mayo. Sour cream and greek yogurt are good substitutes.

Lemon Juice – keeps the avocado from turning brown and adds tang.
