"I love egg salad but was always looking for a healthier option for the mayo. I had an abundance of avocados one day and decided to experiment. I'm sure glad I did! Serve with crackers, bread, or just by itself. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!"

avocado, peeled and pitted

prepared yellow mustard

Delicious! I did use more avocado than called for but that is just because I love them! My granddaughter said to serve this on a ham sandwich and you'd have Green Eggs and Ham!
I thought this was a great healthy option, but I did find it a bit bland. I tried it first as written, then added some capers for some extra flavor. I do love this idea and will continue to tweak it. I think I'll try it next time with Dijon. Thank you for the healthy idea.
Fabulous idea for a healthier "mayonaise". I thought that 1/2 an avocado was just right for this recipe, I'm thinking of using avocado in my tuna next time too! Thanks for a great recipe idea!
I haven't had egg salad in years. I've been wanting to make some since I now have my own chickens. This recipe was so good. Definitely a keeper! I did use more avocado and in place of the salt & pepper, I used a squeeze of fresh lemon juice & a dash of tabasco. Thanks for sharing your recipe, K-Dub!
I have made hundreds of recipes on this sight and not reviewed them, but this one I HAD to. I just made it for lunch and I will never make egg salad the old way again! Thank you!
What a great addition to egg salad - avocado. I was very excited to try this recipe, and I was not disappointed. I was leery that it would bind together without any mayonnaise, but it worked great. I've made this several times to pack in my lunch. All the gals I eat lunch with asked for this recipe. Now they make their egg salad this way. The avocado adds so much flavor and depth to the salad, it just is an odd color. Thanks K-Dub for sharing your recipe. I've shared it many times!
So simple yet so good! This is one of those recipes where you think "Now why didn't I think of that?". I love avocado's and have come across a breed here in Florida called Slimcado's, not quite as flavorful as the varieties I had on the West Coast but still delicious. Because of this, I did add a tiny bit of pickle relish, just for some zing! I think this would be amazing incorporated into a non-mayo potato salad:)
Very flavorful and so easy to make. I did use more avocado and used Dijon mustard as that is our preference. Absolutely delicious! Thanks K-Dub for sharing!
