Avocados + Eggs = Delish!

I love avocados. I love eggs. So why not combine the two to make a tasty lunch idea?!

Avocado egg salad is a game changer. It’s healthy, filling, and incredibly tasty. There are so many ways to eat egg salad. Serve it over lettuce for a lighter fair or spread it on two thick slices of toasted bread for a more filling lunch or dinner idea.

Avocado egg salad is great for packing a lunch and having on a picnic or on a lunch break. It’s always a good time for avocado egg salad sandwiches. My kids love this recipe!! Definitely kid-approved.

Making Tips

Avocado. Wondering the best way to cut an avocado? Cube it in a criss-cross patter (pictured above) and then spoon it out with a big spoon. Comes out perfectly cubed and ready to cook with.

NOTE: Make sure to cut avocado right before serving because it will brown if kept out too long.

Hard-boiled Eggs. Want perfect hard-boiled eggs that are easy to peel and have no gray rings? Here is our perfect hard-boiled egg recipe! Follow those tips to boil your eggs and then come back to this recipe to continue to make your egg salad.
