Light Avocado Egg Salad

"I love egg salad but was always looking for a healthier option for the mayo. I had an abundance of avocados one day and decided to experiment. I'm sure glad I did! Serve with crackers, bread, or just by itself. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!"

  1. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in hot water for 15 minutes. Remove eggs from hot water, cool under cold running water, and peel. Chop eggs and transfer to a salad bowl.
  2. Mash avocado in a separate bowl using a fork. Mix mashed avocado, yellow mustard, and paprika into eggs until thoroughly combined. Season with salt and black pepper.


  • Cook's Note:
  • A whole small avocado will work too. You can always add red pepper flakes for a kick. This recipe is very versatile!

Delicious! I did use more avocado than called for but that is just because I love them! My granddaughter said to serve this on a ham sandwich and you'd have Green Eggs and Ham!

Fabulous idea for a healthier "mayonaise". I thought that 1/2 an avocado was just right for this recipe, I'm thinking of using avocado in my tuna next time too! Thanks for a great recipe idea!

I have made hundreds of recipes on this sight and not reviewed them, but this one I HAD to. I just made it for lunch and I will never make egg salad the old way again! Thank you!

I added a whole avocado to four boiled eggs and it was enough for I & my husband for a sandwich each. Egg salad is generally very heavy and leaves you very full afterwards and this was no except...

What a great addition to egg salad - avocado. I was very excited to try this recipe, and I was not disappointed. I was leery that it would bind together without any mayonnaise, but it worked g...

Very flavorful and so easy to make. I did use more avocado and used Dijon mustard as that is our preference. Absolutely delicious! Thanks K-Dub for sharing!

So simple yet so good! This is one of those recipes where you think "Now why didn't I think of that?". I love avocado's and have come across a breed here in Florida called Slimcado's, not quit...
