Did you know that you can swap avocado for mayonnaise when making egg salad and chicken salad? Here's how!

My sister site, theCookful.com, recently did a whole big series about avocados. It was a blast and the best part was that I had a whole lot of avocados in the house during and after. I came up with some creative ways to use them up, like today’s recipe for Avocado Egg Salad. (Oh, and also, the other day’s recipe for Avocado Chicken Salad. Are you noticing a trend here???).

This turned out to be the perfect lunch. It was filling and satisfying, protein-packed and very nutritious. It’s nutritious because it’s an egg salad but with super-healthy avocado used instead of mayonnaise.

All you do to make this sandwich filling is to mash half of an avocado with a bit of lemon juice. Stir in finely chopped hard boiled eggs, celery, green onion, salt and pepper. Put it onto bread or in a wrap. Done! Something delicious to feel good about.


Have a great day,

    Can you make extra of this or make it ahead of time without the avocado browning??

      Kathy, The avocado will brown, unfortunately. However, have a look at the tips here http://thecookful.com/stop-avocados-from-browning/ What I would do if making it ahead is I would put it in a tall, thin, cylindrical container. This way, the avocado is only exposed a very little bit at the top to air. Push it down good in the container. Then I would pour some lemon juice over the top and press plastic wrap onto it, trying to seal the wrap to the egg salad.
