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!

  • 1 medium avocado pitted and peeled
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt sour-cream or light mayonnaise will also work
