Two Peas and Their Pod

Avocado Egg Salad

Avocado Egg Salad Recipe on www.twopeasandtheirpod.com

Have you dyed your Easter eggs yet? We are going to attempt to do a few with Caleb. It might be one giant mess, but we will try to keep things under control. Josh loves dying eggs and is excited to start the tradition with our little pea.

I know we are going to be stuck with lots of eggs because when Josh dyes eggs, he goes all out. I am not the biggest hard boiled egg fan. I like the egg white part, but not the yolk. It’s a texture thing. I do love Avocado Egg Salad though. Adding avocado changes everything. Avocados really do make everything better!

Avocado Egg Salad is the perfect post Easter recipe because I know you are all going to have a fridge full of hard boiled eggs and the sooner you get rid of them the better. You don’t want your fridge to stink, do you? :)

You can whip up this easy Avocado Egg Salad in a matter of minutes. I add a little plain Greek yogurt for extra creaminess. No mayo for me please:) I also add in green onion, fresh lemon juice, and Dijon mustard for flavor.

The avocados turn the salad green, my favorite color. No wonder I love this egg salad:)

I like to spread the Avocado Egg Salad on to two slices of whole wheat bread. I add fresh spinach leaves and voila-perfect sandwich! Is it lunch time yet? Because I am kind of craving an Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich now. Mmmm! Who knew hard boiled eggs could turn into something so tasty? Avocados for the win!

You can also serve Avocado Egg Salad with crackers, cut up veggies, or eat it in a wrap! It’s also great on toast in the morning. Protein, healthy fats-the breakfast of champions!

Make sure you save some hard boiled Easter eggs to make Avocado Egg Salad. It’s Egg-o-licious!

    yayy for egg salad sans mayo (ick!). I don’t know if we’re going to do eggs or not…we should probably figure that out!

    Love everything about this… and it makes me wonder why I never thought to mix avocado with my egg salad. Brilliant!

    I think the Avocado Marketing Board is going to have a new slogan: Avocados really DO make everything better! LOL

    Have fun coloring eggs with Caleb and take LOADS of pictures of those multi-hued little hands. How I miss those days :)

    I completely agree – white over yolk when left as is. You should’ve shared this for St Patrick’s day! Would have been such a fun ‘green’ sandwich :)

    I tried my hand at an avocado egg salad the other day and it was a major fail – yours sounds SOOOOOO much better! I’ll hit up the store later for more avocados ;)

    I am with you here! I love avocados, the color green and Chobani. I will definitely be making this recipe soon — my kids and I are making dyed Easter eggs today! :)

    Looks so yummy! I haven’t made a good egg salad in years (totally my own fault) but I know this would be stellar. Great recipe!

    Heather Christo — March 27, 2013 @ 11:00 am

    ok, the part where you said no mayo sold me! I am always skiddish of egg salad for that reason, but you made it less scary for me with the yogurt and the delish creamy avocado!

    Karly — March 27, 2013 @ 11:02 am

    I’m with you…avocado does make everything better! Love this!

    Such a great egg salad, love it! And definitely get Caleb in on coloring eggs…it’s a little precarious those first years, but they love it!! We’ll be coloring eggs at the end of the week, yay!

    Gerry @ Foodness Gracious — March 27, 2013 @ 11:12 am

    Love the color! I know what you mean about the yolks and when my son eats the yolk it’s like watching a dog eating peanut butter :)

    Alexis @ Hummusapien — March 27, 2013 @ 12:08 pm

    Love this! I find that adding avocado to almost anything makes it more delicious in my book :) I just made a similar version with chickpeas and it was fab! I’m all for using less mayo and more of the green stuff!

    Now my brain is spinning with ideas on where else I could stick an avocado. I loved your avocado + feta dip, and this egg salad looks yummy.
    I usually just stick potato chips in my egg salad (it’s a great crunch).
    Thanks!

    Kim in RI — March 27, 2013 @ 3:02 pm

    Ok so I have never had egg salad in my life! But since you rave about it, and add avocado which I love, I will be trying this for lunch tomorrow. Will share results! :-)

    I love egg sandwiches, but never thought of adding the avocado! Brilliant… and gorgeous!

    I need these sandwiches! Love this combo in a deviled egg and a sandwich sounds perfect, too.
