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,,, Read More

I will probably continue to sub avocado for mayo but the sweet relish was not good in this recipe. I tried a splash of lemon a little garlic powder a little paprika a little fresh cilantro--basically I threw the cupboard at it to add a little flavor. I'll continue to play with the recipe till I get it how I like it. I agree with the other reviewers that this is quite bland but I don't miss the mayo. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

Th is was great. I did fry up the onions for 3-5 minutes and then let cool as my tummy needs onions to be cooked. Was very yummy. Served it on top of a big slice of tomato. Read More
