AN EASY AVOCADO EGG SALAD RECIPE

Avocado Egg Salad is a delicious take on the traditional egg salad with the addition of creamy and buttery avocado. This Egg Salad is what I serve as a big ole entree for me, and me only! Me likey mucho.

Alright Alright Alright! Hallo, Monday! Hallo, my dear friends! Remember when your dad used to answer the phone with, “YELLOW?” Remember that!?
I used to think, “Oh my gosh, stop it dad, you’re so ancient!”

The guy was like 38…

Uhm, yah… I’m like a year away from that number. Doesn’t seem so ancient anymore, now does it? :-/

SO! Let’s get this week started with:

HOW TO MAKE AVOCADO EGG SALAD

WITH Bacon. BOOM! Suddenly, our food-life seems complete!

We’re keeping it simple today. Like, “it’s Monday” type-of-simple.  Just kick your feet up and enjoy.

Oh no, wait. This does involve a bit of chopping, so get your feet off the table and grab a knife. BUT don’t be like me and sharpen thy knife, then forget that you sharpened it, and then go slicing up avocados and fingers all at the same time, m’kay? Don’t be like me.

I eat avocados like it’s my job. Every day I eat half of an avocado for lunch and sometimes I finish the other half for dinner. A sprinkle of salt and pepper with a squeeze of lime juice is all I need to devour my green and buttery friend.

However, sometimes my breakfast friends, eggs and bacon, love to get up all in that mix and make this girl a very, very happy gourmand.

Before I toss the salad, I shake up a yogurt dressing with a little sour cream, some lime juice and dill – so good! Tangy and creamy, just as it should be, but without the mayo.

NOTES

I always think about putting ranch dressing on this salad. Sounds good, right? Ranch could always be the answer to all my foods. Like, french fries. YUM!

You might also consider adding chopped carrots, celery and capers, and take this salad to your aunt’s potluck. Just a thought.

What I’m trying to say is that you should also try my Avocado Chicken Egg Salad – goooood stuff!

    Hey! I would love to thank you for this wonderful recipe. Thank you so much , I will try it with my daughter. My daughter loves you and we always follow you thanks

  2. This was delicious. My picky 12 year old even ate it. I’m impressed! It’s definitely going on a weekly rotation.

  3. I am super excited to try this recipe.. I bought jalapeno ranch dressing by litehouse and it is not to spicy at all.. I think that it would be eggcellent in this recipe!!

  4. What is considered a serving for this recipe? Is the nutrition information that you posted for the entire dish? I made this recipe and it is wonderful. I am following a keto diet and it is perfect meal.

  5. It works with anything really that you use avocados with. I personally have forgotten about some fridge for 9 days and when I open the container to dispose of it was still just as pretty green as the day I made it. It works try it. Thanks for your delicious recipes.

  6. I have made this recipe many times and keep myself going back to it because it’s one of those that uses pretty standard ingredients and makes a wonderful salad for lunch. I highly recommend.

  7. I can’t eat onions of any kind. The rest of it sounds good. What’s not to like, avocado, bacon,and eggs.

  8. Hi Katerina! I SO want to make this for lunch but I’m totally out of limes & yogurt. When you talked about trying this with ranch dressing, is that without using ANY of the yogurt dressing ingredients? Wanted to make sure ’cause I’m dying to whip some up! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Oh Its yummy I like to eat avocado egg salad. I really like it. Thanks alot Katerina for sharing this blog with us.

  10. Quick question – possible to make the day ahead? Having a brunch and would like to prep as much as possible. The avocado is my only fear, but the lime may keep it from turning brown. Just curious!

      Hi Tanya! I’ve tried doing that, but no matter how much lime you put on that avocado, it will still turn brown after a few hours. But, you can make the rest of the salad a day ahead and then add the avocado the next day, right before you’re ready to serve it. I think that may be the best way to go about it.

      1. I wonder if after making the salad ahead, if you could take plastic wrap & lay directly on the salad, pressing down a little to seal then press up the sides. It’s actually air that causes avocados to brown. I do this with guacomole & it works fine. Just a thought…

          Thank you for that tip!! I will most definitely give it a try – anything to keep my guacamole green and fresh! ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Just a little trick that an awesome Latino chef taught me years ago. If you put the pit in with the salad it will never turn brown. It works with guacamole or anything really that you use avocados with. I personally have forgotten about some guacamole in the fridge for 9 days and when I open the container to dispose of it was still just as pretty green as the day I made it. It works try it. Thanks for your delicious recipes.

  11. I often substitute plain yogurt for sour cream, so I’m wondering if you actually need the T. of sour cream?

    I loved this salad. It was so light and fresh with the healthy dressing, and my husband even cleaned his plate. I did toss in a handful of shredded cheddar and omitted the salt. (not that it HAD to have cheese, but was just in the mood for it) Thank you for sharing.

  15. Just make it. My new favorite egg salad recipe. Beats my mother-in-laws recipe. Don’t tell my husband.

    This is a gorgeous salad! I have an avocado on the counter and tons of fresh eggs.

    I absolutely love egg salad. I eat it all the time on Paleo and love that I can use avocado and make my mayo. Sometimes I cheat and use sour cream and yogurt like your recipe! I can’t wait to try it!

    I could definitely eat a bowl of this for lunch. I love avocados too and eat them all the time, but I love them in salads like this the most. What a great combination of flavors!
