Easy Egg Salad

  • To make egg salad, you do need hard boiled eggs. We love making our eggs in our Instant Pot. They turn out perfect EVERY time. If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can hard boil the eggs on the stove.
  • Once you have your hard boiled eggs, you can whip up this easy Avocado Egg Salad in a matter of minutes.
  • I use two hard boiled eggs and two hard boiled egg whites. I like using a mix to keep the egg salad on the lighter side. If you want to use all hard boiled eggs, you can do that too.
  • Make sure you use a ripe avocado so it will mash right into the egg salad. The avocado is a game changer and makes the egg salad EXTRA creamy!
  • Instead of using mayonnaise, I use plain Greek yogurt to make this healthy egg salad recipe. I promise you won’t miss the mayo. This egg salad without mayo is my favorite. I love the extra boost of protein the Greek yogurt adds.
  • For extra flavor, I also add in green onion, fresh lemon juice, and Dijon mustard.

Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich

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, eat it in a wrap, or add it to a bed of greens! 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!

    Love this recipe! This was also my first time making any type of egg salad. The only thing I can say, and this was my fault, was that I’m going to have left over egg salad for like a week cuz I didn’t pay attention to how much the original recipe yielded, so I doubled the recipe!

    Really liked it! First time trying an avocado egg salad. Yum! Added dill and salt then had to and more lemon to cut it. Oh I used half lemon half lime too

    1. If the nutrition content was included that would be great. I’m counting calories on myfitnesspal…found one there but no clue if correct.

  3. This sounds delicious!! I’m the only one who would eat this. Will it last in the fridge with the avocado? I have just learned to use avocados in things other than quac, and was told when it turns brown not to eat it. I probably would cut this recipe in half but that would still be more than just I would eat.
    Thanks.

    I have made this several times over the last few years when I first found this pin and it is my absolute favorite pinterest find EVER. As someone who is repulsed by the mention of the “m” word, I love that this uses yogurt and avocado. I revisit this recipe anytime I have a few avocados and I forget how much I LOVE this recipe. I’ve been delicious moaning for the past half hour.
