Avocado Egg Salad

If you’ve been following this blog, you know that avocados have taken center stage in our house this year.

Now that I’ve learned how to select ripe avocados in the supermarket and how to safely cut them open, I’ve become obsessed with making homemade guacamole (watch my step-by-step video). In fact, my family accepts nothing less.

And now it seems we’re all determined to integrate avocados into as many dishes as possible.

A new family favorite I developed from scratch, Stuffed Baked Avocados: 3 Ways, is now featured over at P&G Home Made Simple.  We’ve added it  our repertoire and you should too (get the yummy recipes here).:

Last week, our latest avocado-based creation was a version of P&G Everyday’s Avocado Egg Salad.

Sounds like a no brainer, right?  Why not combine avocados to the mayonnaise mixture that binds the eggs together in this celebrated sandwich filler?

Ooh, and adding some cheese helps to create the ultimate tasty creamy base.

You can top off your salad some with some fresh crunchy romaine lettuce pieces and then tuck it in a warm pita pocket.

Or, you can use it as a dip served with some tortilla chips.

Surprisingly, my two kids liked the salad a lot (even though they don’t like mayonnaise).  However, the dish only received one and a half thumbs up.  They claimed at first they were a bit weary about the greenish hue to the salad.  But, they’re willing to try it again and that to me is a sign of success.

So now it’s time for you to try it for yourself.


  1. I saw this on Pintrest and so wanted to know what the recipe was, but there was only an image on the web site. I love egg salad, and have added avocado to it, I find it interesting that you add milk and cheese to yours, pinning.

    would love for you to share this on Tuesdays With a Twist Link Up, it’s an original. For someone reason I am unable to paste, so please just use the link for my site.
