I may have lived on these Avocado Egg Salad Sandwiches during our move. I like to make a batch of this egg salad and keep it in the fridge for a quick bite. Especially when both breakfast and lunch have eluded me. I also sneak a spoonful here and there as I’m walking past the fridge.
Not only does this avocado egg salad contain two of my favorite ingredients, it’s also a great source of protein and healthy fats. It makes a tasty sandwich when paired with fresh sourdough or gluten-free bread and a good handful of microgreens. Sometimes I add the egg salad to dressed spinach and arugula which makes a lovely grain free lunch.
The way I love this Avocado Egg Salad the most, is when I smear it on a thick piece of toast. Ha! I rhymed again.
I originally created this egg salad to be used as tea sandwiches for a spring or Mother’s Day brunch. However, this avocado egg salad is so divine, I think it works well served a multitude of ways.
Although I adore onions, I do not like them in my egg salad. I think something a bit more subtle, like chives, works best in egg salad. I do however, LOVE dill pickle relish in my egg salad. It gives this recipe a little tang and sweetness that blends nicely with the lemon juice and mayonnaise.
You definitely want to use a good quality mayonnaise in this recipe. If you make your own mayonnaise that’s even better. If you don’t, choose a mayo with olive oil, sunflower or safflower oil or even avocados as a base. I don’t want to sound the canola oil police, but frankly, canola oil is a dirty word in my house.
Feel free to use this delectable egg salad for everyday sammies, special brunch tea sandwiches, dolloped on a spring green salad, smeared on a giant piece of toast or right out of the bowl. 🙂
