Creamy avocado egg salad is a luscious variation you never knew you needed and it’s ready in only 15 minutes!

Avocado egg salad is perfect for a quick lunch or picnic, served with crackers or as a sandwich/wrap—just like our classic Egg Salad and Chicken Salad recipes!

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, just a step up from our classic Egg Salad recipe. It’s healthy, filling, and incredibly tasty.

There are so many ways to eat it. Serve it over lettuce for a lighter fare, or toast two thick slices of bread and spread it on for a more filling lunch or dinner idea.

It’s great for packing and having on a picnic or lunch break. Not to mention, my kids love this recipe! It tastes great and is definitely kid-approved.

There are many variations of egg salad with avocado. Add in different spices or ingredients to change up the flavors a bit:

  • Sweet and spicy. Add in honey dijon mustard.
  • Mediterranean. Add hummus.
  • Tangy. Bacon pieces and horseradish.
  • Seasoning. Mix in a little lemon pepper, parsley, dill, or garlic pepper.
  • Veggies. add in chives, red onions, or celery.

Recipe Tips

Use these tips to ensure the best recipe possible!

Avocado. The best way to cut an avocado is to cube it in a criss-cross pattern (pictured above) and then spoon it out with a big spoon. It comes out perfectly cubed and ready to use.

Cut the avocado right before serving because it will brown if kept out too long.

Hard-boiled eggs. For perfect hard-boiled eggs that are easy to peel and have no gray rings, use our perfect hard-boiled egg recipe!

I like to make a big batch of this avocado egg salad recipe and eat it for lunches during the week.

Recipe FAQ

How to keep this salad from turning brown?

The lemon juice in this recipe will keep the egg salad from turning brown for about a day or so when stored in the refrigerator. Also, placing some plastic wrap over your egg salad and pressing it close to the surface before putting the airtight lid on your container will help to prevent browning too.

How to make a healthier version of this recipe?

For a low-carb, keto, or gluten-free option fill lettuce wraps with your avocado egg salad. Greek yogurt can be substituted for mayo for a healthy avocado egg salad.
