A healthier version of the classic egg salad which uses creamy avocado as a substitute for mayonnaise. It turns out just as rich and satisfying but is so much better for you. Perfect between two slices of wholemeal bread, or lettuce cups for a low-carb option!

Notes
  • Make sure you use a ripe avocado for this recipe!
  • Using older eggs will result in boiled eggs that are easier to peel.
  • If you prefer the texture of the egg salad chunkier, simply don’t mash the avocado as much when mixing.
  • Feel free to use any bread that suits your dietary needs eg. gluten-free, low-carb, high-protein etc.
  • This egg salad is also really good in lettuce cups, on crackers or with veggie sticks!
