I came on looking for an easy recipe to use an avocado, since ours was at the far end of ripe. This recipe is *awesome*! We upped it to 3 eggs, and (garlic lover though I am) I would still halve the garlic in the future, but the combination of flavors is fantastic! Perfect as sandwich filling on whole wheat bread.
looks gross...tastes good. i used 4 eggs with 1 avocado...left everything else the same, except subbing greek yogurt for the mayo (since i never use mayo). yummy...and different egg salad sandwich. thanks for posting
I doubled the recipe, except for the garlic powder, added 3oz of smoked salmon & 1T of sour cream, as another reviewer suggested. Served on whole wheat toast...flavorful delightful goodness. Thanks!
"EGG"ceptional!! I am almost ashamed to admit it but it has only been in the last few years that I have discovered and become nearly obsessed with the amazing avocado. Not only did it give boring egg salad a huge flavor boost but it gave it that creaminess that I like in an egg salad - without having to use too much mayo! Can't go wrong with more flavor, less fat and an outstanding texture! Thanks for this great recipe! :)
This was so good! It tastes like a hybrid of guacamole and egg salad. I, like some other reviewers, changed the egg/avocado ratio a bit (I used 3/4 of an avocado per egg), and I used lime juice instead of lemon. Next time I might reduce the garlic powder a bit. Thanks so much for sharing this!
Wonderful. Used dijon mustard. Sprouts, tomatoes, lettuce, cukes...delicious!
I have had this recipe saved for SUCH a long time and today I finally made it for lunch. YUM! Avocados are my favorite and they went great in this egg salad. A nice twist on a classic. I would definitely decrease the garlic powder next time but that is all. I also did not add parsley.
I've always been curious about egg salad but fairly wary. Mayo as a binder makes me uneasy. I'm glad I pushed that aside to try this recipe though. I like to fry some bacon up and mix it in. Even my husband who is suspicious of hard boiled eggs and avocado said if I made this again he would gladly eat it.
WOW. I think my husband would like this too. He isn't big on Avocado alone, but mixed in with the eggs and the seasons. You can get hints instead of a full blown taste. Very fast and easy to make very filling. Some things I might do differently is real garlic and not to much of it and adding onion to it. I plan on making this again and snapping some photos of it. thank you so much for sharing this it's wonderful. my new fav lunch too!!!!
Yummy! Ditto reducing the garlic powder --other than that--fantastic! i really enjoyed this and can see lots of possible adaptations. Thank you!
