Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! How about some more yummy green food to celebrate today? Yes? Okay, then! Avocado Egg Salad to the rescue! 😉
It’s no surprise I’m a HUGE avocado fan! I mean, who isn’t, right? I have countless avocado recipes here on Yummy Healthy Easy, ranging from appetizers all the way to desserts that incorporate avocados in them. They are one of the most versatile fruit on the planet. Avocados can be added to many savory dishes for extra texture and flavor but can also be used to sub out butter and oil in desserts. I can’t think of one bad thing to say about avocados!
I’m teaming up with the California Avocado Commission again this year, along with a few other bloggers, and I couldn’t be more excited!! We have a monthly theme to our recipes, and March’s theme is Surprising Swaps. I was pondering over what I use avocados for as a surprising swap, and the thought immediately hit me that I love using avocados in place of mayonnaise.
Okay, first let me say that I LOVE mayo. I know I shouldn’t because it’s one of those cliche things you know you shouldn’t be eating. But I grew up mixing ketchup into mayo and dipping my fries in them, so yes, I have a good relationship with mayo, lol!
I’m also a huge chicken salad and tuna salad fan but hate adding extra calories because of my love for mayo. Who’s with me?! So a fun and surprising tip is to completely swap out the mayonnaise for AVOCADO!!! Yes! You can do that!
This Avocado Egg Salad is completely mayo-free and seriously tastes absolutely amazing! Imagine if guacamole and hard boiled eggs had a baby, it would be Avocado Egg Salad! Sounds intriguing, right? You will LOVE this recipe. I couldn’t believe the creamy, richness of this Avocado Egg Salad. Eggs are one of my very favorite last minute meals.
I always have hard boiled eggs on hand and there are many days when I will be in a total rush and think, what in the world am I going to make to eat? Then I remember I have eggs, so I’ll whip up a quick egg salad! Eggs are such a great source of protein, and avocados are an amazing source of healthy fat and fiber. The combination? A protein-rich, fiber filled meal! You will never use mayonnaise again after trying this Mayo-Free Avocado Egg Salad recipe!
