Avocados are SO good for you! This is a great way to sneak in this, good, healthy fat. Wondering what’s so good about avocados?
"Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a "nutrient booster" by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients."

You'll be surprised by the amazing flavor adding avocado gives to this healthy and nutritious Avocado Egg salad Recipe.


  • 1-2 small medium ripe avocados
  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 1/4 cup diced red onions
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 3 tablespoons chopped bread and butter pickles
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • bread or rolls


  1. Smash up 1 large or 2 medium/small ripe avocados (If you’ve never used Avocados, I slice mine in half by going around, pop it open, pluck out the seed, and use a spoon to scoop out the avocado)
  2. Add 6 hard boiled eggs (I use the Betty Crocker method: put eggs in saucepan & cover 1” over the top of eggs, bring to boil, cover and remove from heat and allow to stand only 18 minutes. Rinse immediately in cold water to prevent from cooking more which makes them impossible to peel). I then slice them (or rather my kids love to slice them) and then cut again lengthwise.
  3. Add red onions, mayo, bread and butter pickles, dry mustard, and salt & pepper to taste.
  4. Serve immediately on bread of your choice.


HINT: Eat immediately or the avocados will brown (but that doesn't mean it is bad)

  1. If I could eat eggs, I'd try this! I love avocados and so do my kids. I add it to sandwiches, salads, Mexican stuff obviously. It's a great sour cream replacer for tacos and such as well. Good luck with your resolution!

  2. I can't wait to try this- minus the onions. It looks really good. I am always looking for new foods to try. Of course, anything with avocados is good!

  3. It's hard to believe that lunch is on a diet! I have been eating a hard boiled egg with my lunch everyday since the new year but this takes it to a whole new level ... yummy! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Oh wow! We love avocados, but I never thought of adding it to egg salad. That looks great! I'm going to have to pin this... I'

  5. Yum, looks really nice. I am following weight watchers too as really must get the weight under control this year....can't keep blaming baby weight when the twins are now 18 months old, lol!Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  6. Sounds yummy!! I can't wait to try your version!! We do something similar with chicken salad. We substitute the mayo for avocado and then add any fixins we want. It tastes so good.

  7. What an interesting recipe! I'd like to try it! Thanks for sharing at Shine on Fridays!

  8. Never thought of adding avocados to egg salad, great idea. Bet it works for chicken salad, too. One thing you might want to try is good fat-free plain Greek yogurt (like Fage). It is healthier than mayo and shouldn't contain all the chemicals that mayo contains. I've been watching Paula Deen's son's show ("Not my mama's recipe" or something like that) and he is putting fat-free Greek yogurt in everying and says you can't taste the difference.

  9. And if you put a little lime/lemon juice in it, the avocados shouldn't brown. I've also heard you can leave the pit in it to keep it from browning?
