Avocado Egg Salad is light and creamy, with buttery avocado, eggs, and seasonings for a flavor boost. It’s loaded with protein that’s perfect for keto or low-carb diest, or if you just want a fresh, delicious meal that’s incredibly easy to whip up!

Got some extra avocados at home? Make my super-healthy and yummy Zucchini Noodles with Avocado Sauce, and use it as the star of my Cheesecake Factory Avocado Egg Rolls Copycat. For dessert, blend it with chocolate chips for this unbelievable Avocado Ice Cream!

Avocado Egg Salad Keto

Avocado Egg Salad puts a delicious twist to the basic egg salad recipe. I have to admit it— egg salad is tasty, but it’s not the most exciting dish out there. So, I decided to perk it up with avocados, red onions, paprika, dill, and a few more ingredients for a totally fresh twist on the classic. The results are sensational!

Another thing I love about this recipe is how customizable it is. Don’t have mayo? Use yogurt. Experiment with the seasonings, herbs, and spices.

Add some cheese if you feel like it! Eat it on its own, between bagels, or with some lettuce— the possibilities are endless. As long as you have eggs and avocado, you’re good to go. Best of all, this recipe comes together in a few minutes!

Is Avocado Egg Salad healthy?

It’s actually one of the healthiest recipes I have here! You get a ton of fiber from the avocado, and the egg serves up plenty of protein. The herbs and onions are tasty without adding calories. This dish is perfect for keto, whole30, low-carb, and low-calorie diets!

How to make Avocado Egg Salad

  • Mash the avocado. Leave some medium chunks, and combine with the mayo, lemon juice, and Greek yogurt. Season to taste.
  • Prepare the eggs. Dice into chunks.
  • Combine. Stir everything together in a big bowl, including the onions, herbs, and seasonings. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Serve. Garnish with paprika, chives, and green onion.

How do you cut eggs for egg salad?

Slice each egg in the middle, then lay on the cutting board, flat side down. We want some texture for this salad, so dice into bite-sized chunks.

What can I use instead of mayonnaise?

The avocado is already creamy, so we don’t need a lot of mayo for this salad. If you don’t want to use it at all, you may sub with more Greek yogurt.

Other delicious substitutes are ricotta cheese, hummus, and vinaigrette. Some people even use pesto and nut butters!

Why did my egg salad get watery?

It does have that tendency you leave the salad to sit for a while. Prevent this by not overcooking the eggs, and chilling them before slicing. You may even add a few toasted egg crumbs — adds such a subtle, lovely crunch while keeping the dish together.

Can you make it ahead?

Yes, this recipe can last for a few days if well-refrigerated. Due to how easy it is to prepare, however, I prefer to make it on the day itself. That way, everything is absolutely fresh!

How to serve it:

Any way you want! You can eat it as is, but it also works so well inside a pita, as a wrap, or as a sandwich. I also like serving it in tomato cups and using a generous scoop over my favorite greens in place of dressing.

Recipe Tips:

  • Don’t overcook your eggs. Use my Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs; they turn up perfectly every time!
  • Don’t overly mash the avocado. It will naturally break down once you mix it with the rest of the ingredients, so we want some chunks in there.
  • If you have them, use fresh herbs for brighter flavors.
