Got leftover hard boiled eggs and looking for ways to use them up?
Now that I’m on a low-carb keto-friendly diet, I always have hard-boiled eggs on hand that I make in my Instant Pot. They are incredibly nutritious, low in calories and high in protein, folate, phosphorous, selenium and Vitamins, A B2, B5 and B12.
As much as we love these breakfast egg muffins and eggs on their own with some Himalayan sea salt and making deviled eggs…we are just crazy about this healthier Avocado Egg Salad. If you follow me on Instagram stories, you’ll see that I posted this waaaaay back in January.
It’s one of my favorite things to make for lunch. I am a big big avocado fan and love swapping it in recipes to lighten things up. The addition of avocado makes this egg salad super creamy and the Dijon adds that classic tangy flavor.
And even though this egg salad recipe has no mayo, it’s still got a ton of delicious flavors!
Plus, if you’ve got leftovers, this egg salad makes a great lunch for spring parties or summer picnics.
You can enjoy this egg salad alone with a fork (totally guilty), in sandwiches, pita pockets and even lettuce wraps for a low carb keto version.
HOW DO YOU MAKE THIS AVOCADO EGG SALAD?
Start off by peeling your hard boiled eggs. This is my favorite method for perfectly peeled hard boiled eggs every. single. time.
Mash them together with two ripe avocados, some Greek yogurt, Dijon, lemon juice, salt, pepper and some fresh dill.
HOW DO YOU SERVE THIS AVOCADO EGG SALAD?
Enjoy either alone
-> spread in a sandwich (I added some kale and cabbage slaw),
-> fill into a pita,
-> or scoop onto on some lettuce wraps for a low carb keto friendly version
