I love to have eggs for breakfast. They are high in protein and so filling. A perfect start to the day!

As someone who loves eggs, I love a good egg salad. Now combine that with avocados, and you get the best combination – avocado egg salad.

Easy Avocado Egg Salad

This healthy avocado and egg salad breakfast is made with avocado, eggs, onions, Greek yogurt, fresh herbs and lemon juice.

Avocado is a true superfood. Healthy avocado egg salad is high in micronutrients, healthy fats, and low in carbs. The egg salad itself is paleo-friendly, too.

If you like a little spice, you can also add some diced jalapeños, making it a true spicy guacamole egg salad.

This avocado egg salad is great to enjoy on a slice of bread to make avocado egg toast or an egg salad sandwich.

If you want to make it lighter, enjoy it on lettuce leaves to make egg salad lettuce wraps, similar to my Waldorf chicken salad. Perfect for a gluten-free or paleo diet.

Why you will love this avocado and egg salad

  • Quick and Easy to make
  • It takes just 5 minutes if you have hard-boiled eggs.
  • Healthy and low in carbs
  • A great filling breakfast or lunch

Ingredients

Eggs: I like to meal prep hard boiled eggs. If you have an instant pot, use it to make the best easy peel hard boiled eggs. Otherwise, you can also boil the eggs on the stovetop.

Avocado: The star ingredient of this recipe. Use a ripe avocado. You an keep it chunky or mash it based on your preference.

Red Onions: I like to add some chopped red onions to this egg salad for some crunch. If you like, you can add some finely chopped celery too.

Greek Yogurt: Add some greek yogurt for extra creaminess. If you prefer, you can substitute with mayonnaise too.

Jalapeno (optional): This is completely optional. Slit the jalapeño to half, remove the seeds and membrane. Then, finely dice the jalapeño. Adjust the quantity to taste or skip.

Salt & Pepper: Add to your taste.

Parsley: Some chopped fresh parsley adds a wonderful aroma and taste to the salad.

Lemon juice: Adds some tanginess and fresh flavors to the egg salad.

  1. This looks so tasty! Love avocados, eggs and jalapeños, but not a huge fan of red onion. Could I use just a bit of onion powder instead? I know it won’t give it the red onion flavor, but would it need at least some onion or should I just omit? Thank you 🙂

    1. Hello – It is totally fine to use onion powder or even skip onions. They add a crunch to the salad but feel free to skip it if you prefer.

  2. Tried today and it was really yummy and my hubby loved it. Thanks for the yummy and nutritious recipe.

  3. Hi Meeta,

    Decided to try this for something different and so glad I did. Both hubby and I thought it was delicious. Loved the suggested addition of jalapeno and onion. Yum
