Avocado Egg Salad Recipe (2)

We always have a ton of hard boiled eggs in ourhouse. They are a snack or choice with the family. I’m always trying to come up with new things to do with all those eggs.

But old habits die hard, and my thoughts kept wandering back to egg salad. I found myself wondering, isn’t there something I could do to make that old standby fun again? You know, put a little twist on it? So I started thinking about all the things that go into an egg salad. Eggs…mustard…mayonnaise… hey, wait, can’t you use mashed avocado in place of mayo in a dip? Oh, snap!

I did a little tinkering, and I found that adding avocado to my egg salad – while leaving the rest of the ingredients pretty much unchanged – takes it to a completely new level. It turns from plain old egg salad into this exciting, modern taste sensation, like magic. The version I finally settled on substitutes half a mashed avocado for most of the mayo, while leaving in just a little for the tang. I leave the other half of the avocado unmashed and put slices on top to add another layer of texture.

    I’ve been making this basic recipe for years!! I do, however, add a few more flavor enhancers.

  3. Hi! I was wondering how you would store this or should you eat this after preparing? I’ve known avocado to be tricky to store in the fridge.

    Reply

    1. I usually eat it the same day, but have also stored it in an airtight container in the fridge. If you are worried about the avocado browning, you can add a little lime juice to the avocado before storing.

  4. Loved the recipe ! Put a low card spin with no bread just spinach and ParmCrisps. Yummy

    1. We are team dill pickle at our house, but if you are fan of sweet pickles, I am sure that would work too 🙂
