We make hard boiled eggs every single week. They are a great healthy snack to have in the fridge. I also use them to make egg salad, deviled eggs, and this healthy Avocado Egg Salad.

Adding creamy avocado changes everything. Avocados really do make everything better! I promise you are are going to love this spin on the classic egg salad. It is one of my favorite healthy meals. It is great for breakfast, lunch, a hearty snack, or even dinner!

I always make this Avocado Egg Salad at Easter time because we always have lots of leftover hard boiled eggs.

How to Make Avocado 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.

How to Serve

I like to spread the Avocado Egg Salad on to two slices of whole wheat bread. I add fresh spinach leaves or mixed greens 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!

How to Store

Because this egg salad recipe has avocado mixed in it is best to eat it the day you make it because the avocado will turn brown.

If you happen to have leftovers, you can add a little extra lemon juice which will minimize the browning. I also like to put it in an airtight container and press plastic wrap directly on top of the salad so no air is touching it. You can keep it in the fridge for up to 2 days.

  1. 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!

  2. Right on time for Easter! Love eggs & love avocado so this would make a great recipe, can’t wait to try 🙂

  3. Yum! These look delicious! Can’t wait to try them with all of our left-over eggs too!

  4. Ohhh your egg salad sandwich looks delish!! Love the egg and avocado combo.

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

  6. 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 🙂

  7. I have been want to make an avocado egg salad for a while now!! I am so excited to try yours!! Avocado’s + Eggs are amazing!

  9. I’m dying over this – avocado egg salad just sounds simply magnificent!! I want to dig in right now!!

  10. 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 😉

  11. I love egg salad sandwich, this version sounds great because it adds one of my favorite foods avocados!

  14. Oh yes this sounds wonderful!! I love hard boiled eggs AND avocado! So this is a match made in heaven for me!

  15. 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!

    1. Mayo will not spoil or ruin a salad …. raw onions are what can cause you a problem with food poisoning. It is an old myth that has been revisited and is documented in many places. Check it out. 🙂

  16. 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!

  20. This sandwich looks so good – I’ve always wanted to try avocado and egg salad together

    I usually just stick potato chips in my egg salad (it’s a great crunch).

  22. 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! 🙂

    Substitute for mayo in general? Coz I m using mayo almost
    Every other day.Thanks!

  28. If you add a little ham (either a deli slice or chopped up leftover from Easter) you can make it a Green Eggs and Ham Salad sandwich!

  29. Oh yum! I have made an avocado chicken salad before, so I know this has to be good too!

  30. i made avocado egg salad on monday night with our easter eggs and we devoured it! as in, two people ate four people’s worth 🙂 so good!

  31. This looks absolutely incredible. Your recipe would be amazing to serve on Easter day for lunch. Thank you for sharing! This is a great idea.

  32. I live for post-Easter Egg Salad – I’ve never had it with avocado though – you sold me. Like it took much convincing – I’ve got 2 dozen eggs and two avocados in my fridge as I type!!

  33. Great recipe! Wondering if you could do a post on best ways to find recipes from blogs now that punchfork is gone. I have not used Pinterest. Wish we could have punchfork back! I never would have found you without it!

  34. Just made this yesterday and it was delicious!!! Do you have any tips on how to keep it from turning brown? I made it in the afternoon and put it in an airtight plastic tupperware container, but by evening it had turned brown.

  35. oh my goodness i have to try this! 🙂 i’m currently preggo, obsessed with eggs and i heard avocado is good for me right now! 😉

  36. This looks absolutely amazing! It sounds so fresh, healthy, and easy! I’m so grateful you posted this recipe!

  37. This is such a cool idea, and I love the special touch of a few baby spinach leaves to finish off a (fairly!) healthy sandwich. Yum… I think I might try this today, if I can find some ripe avocados.

  38. Just ate this. OMGSH SO GOOD. I like bigger pieces of egg so i mixed those roughly chopped after mixing and mashing everything else. Love the addition of lemon juice and green onion.

  39. My mom found a link to this recipe on my blog and she can’t stop talking about how much she loved it 🙂 thanks again for a great recipe!! xo

    1. I ate it the next day for lunch and it was fine! The avocado might turn a little brown, just make sure you use lime juice!

  40. Thank you for this brilliantly simple, simply brilliant recipe! I had an avocado that I needed to use soon and a couple of hard boiled eggs in the fridge, and thought, hmmmm, could I make an egg salad with these? Quick search lead me to the answer to that question: your recipe! 😀 It is deeeeee-lish!

  41. I made this the other night and had family members try it. They LOVED it!!! It was a big hit. This became a new regular item for lunch.

  42. Avocado and eggs are such a natural combo, I don’t know why I’ve never had them in sandwich form before!

  43. This looks amazing! How long would the egg salad last with the avocado? I know avocados turn brown so quickly! Is this something you should eat right away, or could you make it to have for lunch for the week?


  44. This looks delish! I was wondering how long it will last in the fridge… Or do you need to eat it right away?

    1. It is best the day it is made, but I eat leftovers the next day and it is fine. The avocado browns a tad, but it still tastes great. So if you were serving it, I would make it the day of, but if you don’t care if there is a little brown, you can eat it the next day. It still tastes good!

  45. Thank you SO much for this recipe! I now have a quick and easy recipe to serve to all of my non-vegetarian friends…they loved it! (:

  46. Maria ~ Do you think if you mixed everything up sans avocado it would stay good for a few days? I was thinking you could add the avocado to the portion you scoop out for the sandwich maybe?

  47. This sounds so yummy! I’m not a fan of mayo or egg yolks (Are we related??) and I’m working on a post about cooking on the cheap. Eggs fit the bill! Can’t wait to try this one.

    I’m going to link this on my website http://www.theeducationaltourist.com where I write about traveling with the kids and making the adventure magical. I would love a shout out from you!

    Thanks for sharing!
    Natalie, The Educational Tourist

  48. I’m new to the avocado world, if I make the spread tonight, will it be okay by tomorrow morning? Thanks. 🙂

  49. Knowing the truth about “Easter” and its pagan origins, I don’t have a fridge of boiled eggs; that’s a good thing, because I despise the whites and always throw them away when I boil eggs.

    I like avocados, I like egg yolks, and I like good old yellow mustard, and mayo. This sounds like a very good base for an egg salad, so I’ll put my own spins on it, and see what it’s like.

  50. This is seriously one of my favorite recipes ever! I am obsessed with all things avocado and love that this is a healthier version of egg salad. Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. It is best the day it is made, but if you don’t mind it browning a bit you can eat it the next day!

  51. The only things I would add to this yummy recipe are tarragon, more lemon juice and a sprinkle of my favorite garlic pepper!

  52. Normally I go with Caesar over egg salad since the crumbs tend to get caught up in my beard. But when a recipe is this good, well, who could resist!? Plus I find you can dye the shells, if you are really careful and just a tad creative. Then the only thing funner is hiding them!!

  53. Help the disabled person , if you can ! MARAHOVSKA GANNA. Visa 4731 2171 1374 0177 Thank you for your help and your big heart !

  54. What a wonderful way to change up egg salad for sandwiches! I imagine the avocado elevates it to another level of creaminess and flavour. Thanks for sharing…will definitely try this 😉

  55. A great way to have a healthy lunch with family & friends, & to spice it up add a little home made chile on the side, with a talk glass of cran cherry. This outdoor lunch wll brng smles

    I just made it and took a couple of tastes. It’s not cold yet and flavors have not combined but so far it tastes pretty good.a

  57. 5 stars
    The best egg salad I’ve ever had!! A great lunch salad scooped on top of fresh spinach, yum.  Definitely eat the day you make it especially if you want to serve to others. The brown color can be a little off putting! haha A great recipe!

  58. 5 stars
    Making this right now, all the right ingredients for me to love!!!! Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. I just got done making and eating this. Soooo refreshing and was fantastic on hearty wheat bread. Oh by the way tastes fantastic

  59. 5 stars
    Ummmm…. this.is.amazing! My friends and family loved it. I will add a dash or two of Tabasco next time to spice it up a little, but it is fantastic as written!

    This looks amazing! I will definately give it a try!
    I hope I will manage as I am not a great cook!

    I made the avacodo and egg salad recipe and it was fantastically delishious.  I will definitely be trying your other recipes. I would give this a 5+*

  62. 5 stars
    Is there any nutritional info on This? Cal., carbs, sugars per serving? Would really be helpful w/my app to help reach weight & health goals.

  63. 4 stars
    This recipe is so simple yet taste really good! It fits me so well because I’m someone who love egg salad but don’t like the taste of mayo so this substitute is a real savior!! *I put some tomato cubes and add a little bit more lemon juice to make it a little more sour and it just taste brilliant❤️ 

  64. I used four eggs and mayo as I didn’t have any plain yogurt. Would definitely make again. You’d think that would not be enough green onion, but it comes right through.

  65. 5 stars
    I made this today. Used 3 whole eggs, most of an avocado, and a touch of mayonnaise with the yogurt. No onion, but might do dill pickles next time. Probably could have put in a bit more pepper and salt, a bit more lemon. I did use honey dijon mustard, a bit more than the recipe. It is good and I will make it again. I had this with 5-grain crackers.

  66. 5 stars
    Made this for the first time and it really was delicious! I found adding a bit more lemon than in the recipe helped.

  67. Made tonight. . Used mayo as dairy in yogurt and I don’t get along. So yummy and creamy. Topped a salad with it instead of dressing! Delish!

  68. unique, creative idea in my opinion … rarely do I find food like this … by the way thanks for this amazing recipe

  69. 4 stars
    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!

  70. 5 stars
    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.

  71. 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.

  72. 5 stars
    I’m going to add some leftover rotisserie chicken for a little more protein. Making it today.

  73. 5 stars
    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.

  74. Can I use something else instead of the mustard? I’m not a big fun of, so I was wondering with could make just whiteout or having something instead of mustard.

  75. 5 stars
    Just made this for lunch and served on top of ezekiel toast. It was fast and easy to make, very healthy, and delicious! Ii topped it off with red chile flakes. What a wonderful recipe. Thank you!

    This was delicious!!! Used 1 less egg yoke, cashew yogurt, and extra mustard and lemon juice to our taste. Ate on a slice of Ezekiel bread and topped it with spinach. So yummy!
