"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
chopped green onion
prepared yellow mustard
salt and ground black pepper to taste
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!
Other than using a whole avocado, I made the recipe as directed. It seemed to be missing something. It was kind of bland.
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 was so hungry for an egg sandwich, so when I saw this one, I HAD to have it! I used a little more avocado than called for, and I made two substitutions: Dijon instead of the yellow mustard and Tajin (chili powder with dehydrated lime) for the paprika. I ate this open faced and loved it! I think my son would like this without the bread because he is on the paleo diet, and this would work. This is delicious!
Delicious and knowing that it is "lite" made it all the better. I used Honey-Mustard Dijon and added more just to give it a bit more moisture. Tastes good in a tortilla too!
Loved! Used a whole avocado as others suggested! Added a dash of onion powder!!
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:)
