Creamy Avocado Egg Salad

Spice up the usual egg salad with the addition of avocado. Avocado makes a delicious and nutritious addition to egg salad and thanks to its naturally creamy texture, you can enjoy egg salad without the adding mayo! Creamy Avocado Egg Salad (Healthy, Low-carb, Keto)If you haven’t tried avocado egg salad then it’s time you enjoy egg salad in a whole new way. A simple nutrition rich ingredient such as avocado with the addition of lemon, salt, pepper and your favorite herbs works wonders and adds much-needed flavor and zest to the typical egg salad. Play around with the herbs and use parsley, dill or chives or use my personal favorite, cilantro, and enjoy a wholesome flavor-packed dish.

It’s packed full of fiber thanks to the avocado and is great if you are on a low-carb, paleo or keto diet or if you simply want a healthy salad. Because avocado is naturally creamy in texture, you won’t need as much mayo to make it creamy. A few tablespoons of Greek yogurt or sour-cream go a long way in making this salad creamy! Creamy Avocado Egg Salad (Healthy, Low-carb, Keto)

    Try using huMMus instead of avOcado! Garlic and a bit of basil chopped up are divine!

      I would not make this egg salad in advance. It’s best served fresh!

    tO keep this from Browning place the AVACADO seed in the middle of the 🥗 salad. You can do the same with guacamole. Also 🍋 juice helps too 😎 The seed TRICK works!

    This turned out fabulously!! I added chives on top as well as the cilantro. Used mayo, and a tablespoon of mustard. I think I will add some diced dill pickle next time to snazz it up a little.
    My super picky 13 yr old even loved it!!!!! Thank you for this recipe!!

    Omg! Yum!! Came out perfectly and added Trader Joe’s “Everything but the bagel seasoning” to give it a little extra! Thank you for another great recipe!

      Layla

      Thanks for the Everything seasoning tip! I will be sure to try it next time.

    This look DELISH!! Can you tell me what could keep the avocado from turning brown by the next day or do you just make enough to eat it all that day? Thank you!

      Erin

      Leave the avocado out in it.. it will help it from browning 😉

      Layla

      I like to cover it tightly with plastic wrap to keep it from browning.

      Dana

      Lemon juice is a natural preservative. It keeps avocados STAYING green.i even put it on my leftover sliced apples, that my two year old doesn’t finish. And you don’t even taste the lemon!
