This Avocado Egg Salad recipe is creamy, crunchy and full of color and great taste. It’s the perfect solution for leftover hard boiled eggs, or the perfect option for a great sandwich!

The avocados are an awesome sub for much of the mayo typically found in many egg salad recipes. Plus they add delicious creaminess. The seasonal radishes add the crunch and color (speaking of color, keep in mind your egg salad will have more of a green tint than yellow, thanks to the avocados), and the lemon zest adds a touch of sunny citrus.

Notes

Keep in mind your egg salad will have more of a green tint than yellow, thanks to the avocados!

Ingredients

  • Eggs, hard boiled, chilled and peeled
  • Avocado, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • Radishes, finely chopped
  • Green onion, finely chopped
  • 2  tablespoons  Low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1  tablespoon  Fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2  tablespoons  Lemon juice
  • 1  tablespoon  Lemon zest
  • 1/4  teaspoon  Salt, to taste
  • 1/8  teaspoon  Black pepper, to taste

Directions

Hard boil 6 eggs. Once cooled, peel them and separate the yolks from the whites. Dice the whites into small pieces.

In a large bowl, combine the egg yolks, avocado and non-fat mayonnaise. Note: If you use 2 avocados, I suggest only1 tablespoon of mayo, and if you use 1 avocado, go with 2 tablespoons of mayo) and mash everything together with a fork or potato masher until combined and smooth (I like to leave mine slightly chunky).

Mix in the lemon juice, zest, parsley, radishes, green onion and salt and pepper to the mixture. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

Gently fold in the diced egg whites and combine.

Chill until ready to use. Serve on sandwich bread or on lettuce leaves with your favorite veggies, if you’d like.

Avocado Shopping Tip

Avoid very soft avocados; choose those that yield slightly to finger pressure.

Avocado Cooking Tip

Avocados oxidize quickly; use lemon juice to keep the flesh from turning brown.
