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!

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 haven't had egg salad in years. I've been wanting to make some since I now have my own chickens. This recipe was so good. Definitely a keeper! I did use more avocado and in place of the salt & pepper, I used a squeeze of fresh lemon juice & a dash of tabasco. Thanks for sharing your recipe, K-Dub!
