Egg Salad with Avocado Recipe. A twist on a classic.

Hooray! It’s Fresh Friday! Have you ever tried Avocado Egg Salad?

Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich

Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich

Yesterday I had an egg-streme craving for egg salad. I carefully hard-boiled my beautiful Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs and opened the refrigerator reaching in expecting to pull out the jar of mayonnaise. All I found was a sad empty spot. My hopes of an amazing  egg salad sandwich were dashed!

But then, I had an epiphany! Why not use avocado in place of mayonnaise! BRILLIANT! A perfectly ripe avocado offers the same smooth texture as mayonnaise with a much fuller flavor.  Did you know that avocados can help your body absorb certain nutrients better? Avocados are also high in oleic acid which helps to prevent breast cancer a benefit similar to that of olive oil (For more nutrition facts about avocados check out this link). I must admit that I actually have a slight avocado addiction. If I have ripe avocados on hand I will slice them open drizzle in a little olive oil in and scoop out the creamy deliciousness with a spoon. Sadly, my dad is allergic to avocados (and bananas too–who knew these two foods were related?). Hopefully this will be one allergy that I do not inherit! My children are huge fans of avocados or “cado” as they like to call it. I guess they inherited my avocado loving gene!

Now, back to the point . . . thankfully my plans for an amazing Avocado egg salad sandwich were granted! We had just been to our wonderful local Littleton Food Co op or the “COOP” as many of my friends call it. My daughter had lovingly counted out 4 avocados and placed them gently in the bag . . . 1, 2, 3, 4! I chose the most perfectly ripe avocado, sliced it open and mashed it! The next thing I added was 2 beautiful hard boiled Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs with the most golden yolks.  I squeezed in some fresh lemon juice and added a little salt and pepper. To finish off my avocado egg salad sandwich masterpiece I used organic whole wheat bread and some beautiful salad greens.

The result was PERFECTION! This sandwich has taken the original plain egg salad to a whole new level with light lemon flavors and rich creamy avocado goodness.

Recipe for Avocado Egg Salad:

Directions: Cut avocado into halves and remove the pit and skin. Mash or dice avocado. Boil and peel eggs. Dice the organic eggs. In a bowl mix mashed or diced avocado with diced egg. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Choose your favorite bread to make a sandwich adding salad greens, eat with crackers or plain. Enjoy!

  1. Love this idea!!! I’m so excited to make it and the Littleton Co-op is on my way home 🙂

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE avocado with eggs and seasonings and lime. We actually had it for dinner last night.

  3. YUM that looks good! I love avocado, and I love eggs, but I haven’t combined them into egg salad! Fantastic idea. I have made and enjoyed avocado in my egg scrambles though, maybe similar? Thanks for the idea!

  5. This is my idea of perfection! I just had an egg salad sandwich for breakfast but will be incorporating avocado to it the next time..which will be very soon!

    1. This sandwich was just absolutely heaven . The creaminess of the avocado and the yolk together was so delicious. Plus a little lemon to add some acid. Did you try your breakfast sandwich????

  6. Hi! I happened upon your blog via your Tera’s Whey post and smoothie recipe, which I’ll definitely try. Have you tried adding an avocado to the smoothie??? Best faux ice cream you’ll ever eat! I add avocado to my home made “ice cream” at home and its so creamy we have a hard time eating the store bought stuff now! Love the blog, keep up the good work!

  7. Made this tonight with just a bit of mayo and finely diced celery. It was delicious!! I’ll be making it again. Thanks for the recipe!

  9. I don’t buy avocados because I’m never sure what to do with them. This actually sounds Very good! When you were describing making the salad, I never thought you were using the entire avocado. You used that all for one sandwich?! You’re my kind of sandwich maker!! Thanks for the great idea!

    1. I am obsessed with avocados so using the whole avocado is just perfect for me! Avocados can be great on their own too with the addition of a little olive oil.

  10. I love egg salad (and potato salad!) and your recipe sounds great (not to mention it looks STUNNING). I’ve pinned it, and I’ll be looking for an opportunity to try it out!
