TIPS FOR THE BEST AVOCADO EGG SALAD RECIPE
- Hard boil your eggs ahead of time. They key is to not overcook your hard boiled eggs. You definitely don’t want that green tinge around your yolk. Make sure to watch my hard boiled egg tutorial for boiled egg success every time.
- Don’t overly mash the avocado. Avocados are naturally creamy and as soon as you stir the ingredients together the avocado will start to break down. It’s always nice to have it a little more chunky, rather than the texture of guacamole.
- Use fresh herbs. I’m using chives and parsley, but you could also use cilantro, basil or even tarragon. Have fun with the flavors.
- Use homemade mayonnaise. Once you make homemade mayonnaise you’ll never buy it from the store again. It’s incredibly easy and tastes much better. If you prefer to not use mayonnaise, you could also use sour cream or yogurt (and opt for dairy-free on those as well).
HOW TO MAKE AVOCADO EGG SALAD?
It’s as easy as adding all of the items to a bowl and stirring together. Seriously. You can eat the avocado egg salad plain, topped on your favorite bread (I highly recommend my paleo zucchini bread) or on lettuce leaves.
This recipe is best made fresh, but you can store it in the fridge for up to two days. That’s less than regular egg salad, because after two days the avocados in this recipe will start to oxidize and turn brown. I highly doubt that you’ll ever have any leftovers though. In fact, you can easily double or triple this recipe as well. Enjoy!
