Whatever you pick, this egg salad recipe includes protein-packed hard-boiled eggs, tangy Greek yogurt, and fresh herbs, creating a delicious and nutritious meal you can enjoy for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Our avocado egg salad takes just a few minutes to make using the two main ingredients you need in our recipe, avocado, and eggs. Those two are a big part of our lifestyle because of their low carb content, loaded with healthy fats and great nutrition facts involved. 

Avocado Recipes

We all love avocados, and using them to make the best recipes in our lifestyle is the way to go and get the fat content into your body, which is vital. 

You can, as an example, cut it in half and use as an avocado burger, mash it into guacamole, add slices onto taco soup, around cloud egg for breakfast, or layer it on top of a chaffle sandwich or toast. 

And if that is not enough, you can make delicious avocado popsicles that are so healthy to use even as a breakfast option. If you still get some left, learn how to freeze avocados.

Egg Recipes

An egg is another excellent ingredient we use almost daily. Hard cook is perfect for making our web-deviled eggs to our recipe, great for Halloween. 

The egg is a part of fathead dough, which I use as the main dough for many recipes, and if you need something special, a glass of eggnog makes everything better. 

Keto Friendly and Low Carb Lettuce Wrap

Lettuce leaves are a fantastic option for those following a low-carb or paleo lifestyle who still want to enjoy a classic sandwich’s delicious flavors and textures. When making an avocado egg salad, using lettuce leaves as a wrap instead of bread or a tortilla is a great way to reduce carbs while still getting a satisfying and filling meal. 

Lettuce leaves add a refreshing crunch to the dish that pairs perfectly with the creamy and rich avocado egg salad.

Let us dive into the steps to transform traditional egg salad without mayo into a powerful, healthy egg salad recipe.

Kitchen gadgets needed:

  • Mixing bowl
  • Sharp knife
  • Egg cutter
  • Spatula

Ingredients needed:

  • Ripe Avocado
  • Cooked Eggs
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Lemon
  • Chives
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper

*Exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below.

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING THE BEST AVOCADO EGG SALAD RECIPE 

First Step: Prepare ingredients

Prepare all ingredients needed. Use a ripe avocado; yogurt can be made in liters using Instant Pot. 

With regards to herbs, I have used chives, but parsley, dill, thinly chopped celery, or red onion is a great addition as well.

Second Step: Avocado

Slice the avocado in half and cut it into small chunky square-shaped pieces. Place it into the medium size bowl, where you mix the whole salad afterward. It will allow you to integrate avocados into the spread easier.

Third Step: Add Eggs

For this recipe, I have used pre-boiled eggs, which I have left to cool down. You do not want to add eggs that are still warm because, in the end, this salad is supposed to be refreshing, and the heat from the eggs might make the avocado brown quickly before adding lemon in.

As you see in the image, I am using a little gadget I got from my mum. It is supposed to be for cutting cooked potatoes into squares, but since we are not using potatoes anymore, I still use it if I need to cut more than one egg. It goes much faster, and you can have a bowl of small egg squares in seconds.

Fourth Step: Add Chives

I am so much in love with chives, and when the season comes, I add them to every dish possible. In our garden, they multiply, which is another excuse to use them all the time.

Chop chives and add them to the bowl.

Fifth Step: Add Greek Yogurt

Adding Greek yogurt to this avocado salad will give more creaminess and replace mayonnaise for some used to it. Yogurt is a healthier way to make this salad just perfect.

You can look at how to make Greek yogurt in your Instant Pot.

Sixth Step: Lemon

Squeeze whole half a lemon into the mixture, especially over the avocados. It will make the avocados keep their beautiful green color, and you will have no problem browning them.

Seventh Step: Add Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Add a generous amount of extra virgin olive oil to the bowl. We do not have a particular favorite brand. Every time we travel, we must bring a few bottles of olive oil with us. This way, we always try new brands and always have enough oil at home.

My daughter is ready to drink olive oil daily, so we ensure we have the best available at all times.

Eighth Step: Mix and taste

Add a little salt and pepper and adequately mix the whole salad. Add more herbs and lemon juice, salt, or pepper, and serve.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Herbs – parsley, dill, or thinly chopped celery or red onion is also a great addition. 
  • Way to cook eggs – place eggs into a cooking pot. Pour enough water to cover the eggs fully and hard boil the eggs. Once done, put them into the ice bath in a medium bowl. It will cool them immediately and will make eggs easier to peel. 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

What to Serve Avocado Egg Salad With?

This creamy and healthy avocado egg salad can be used on any occasion.

Can I Use Leftovers for Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich?

Yes, you can use leftovers for an avocado egg salad sandwich. Using leftover hard-boiled eggs and any additional ingredients from the salad can be a great way to save time and reduce food waste.

You can also spread the avocado egg salad between two slices of bread for a great lunch box idea. 

Can I make Guacamole Egg Salad?

Absolutely. Guacamole egg salad is a delicious and easy variation of the classic recipe. Mix mashed avocado, chopped hard-boiled eggs, lime juice, diced red onion, chopped cilantro, and any additional seasonings you prefer for a flavorful and nutritious twist on traditional egg salad.

Does Avocado Egg Salad Turn Brown?

Avocado will oxidize and turn brown if left on its own.

But our avocado salad does not turn brown at all. The reason and secret ingredient Is lemon. I always pour the lemon on the cut avocados as soon as possible to keep the color at its best.

How Do You Store This Easy Avocado Egg Salad?

Since all ingredients are fresh, this avocado egg salad is best eaten immediately. But if you still want, store it in an air-tight container inside the fridge for 2-3 days.

Press plastic wrap directly on top of the leftover salad before closing to retain the freshness. 

Can You Freeze Creamy Avocado Egg Salad?

I recommend freezing this salad. This is also why I have made the recipe with only one avocado, not to have lots of it and be able to consume it quickly and fast.

The problem with freezing is that all of the ingredients used in this recipe will make the salad thaw after de-freezing, and it would taste better than a fresh salad.
