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.ย 

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.

Avocado Egg Salad Tea Sandwiches for Spring Brunch or Mother's Day // Karista's Kitchen

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.ย 

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. ย 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love,

    Hi Karista! I made this delicious egg salad last night for dinner! We had a lot of boiled eggs leftover from our Seder so your recipe timing was spot on. I served it on a bed of spinach with asparagus spears on the side and we loved it. Thank you! I’m craving spring flavors (especially since we have yet more snow/sleet/rain falling…) and this was perfect. I didn’t know you moved so we need to catch up. I hope you’re settling in well. Hugs to you! xx

      Hannah, I’m so happy you love the recipe! We’re still in Oregon, about 40 minutes north of where we were. We’re still having winter like weather here too! I’m so ready for spring. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, let’s definitely catch up soon. xoxo Karista
