"I wanted to make a healthier egg salad. This one uses avocado instead of mayonnaise. Serve in a sandwich or on crackers."

My original way of making egg salad sandwiches just went out the window!! This is a fantastic recipe with a nice twist of avocado to it. I was looking for something a bit more than traditional and I found it, very tasty as well. I doubled the recipe and with that I added two tablespoons of olive oil mayonnaise ( only because I like it with it, recipe does NOT, need it, for I tried it with out the mayo also). I also added just a splash, splash only of lemon juice to keep avocado from browning as it chilled. This recipe is a definite keeper. LOVE IT. Thank you for posting it. Tip keep the pit of the avocado with the finished salad and the keeps from browning too,,,
Fixed a half batch of this for my lunch. It was delicious. I mixed it up the night before so the flavors had all night to meld. Loved the crunch of the celery and onion in this egg salad. I had this with crackers and stuffed a stalk of celery. A great lunch option that I will be making again. Thanks, Karen S. for sharing your recipe.
This was delicious! I will defiantly make again.
I love this! its healthy and super super easy to make, and of course tasty!!!
I did Ms. Kansas' tweaks with double quantity, still 1 avocado, splash of lemon and mayo (I agree the mayo is not needed, I just prefer a creamier egg salad). I used Vlasic Sweet Relish and felt that the pickle sweetness was overpowering to the other flavors, so next time I'll probably try regular relish or half quantity. But definitely this recipe's a keeper - especially if you need to clear out some eggs quick out of the fridge.
