Ingredients

  • 1 avocado, ripe

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon, freshly squeezed, add one tablespoon first, then taste.

The "No Mayo" egg salad sandwich

  1. Boil , cool, and peel eggs. Scoop out avocado and add the mustard, lemon juice, minced garlic and onion, salt and pepper. Stir all the ingredients together.
  2. If using bread, I like to toast the bread, then add the egg salad. Now sprinkle some cheese on top and pop it back in the toaster until the cheese is brown and bubbly. This takes about 5 more minutes.

No mayo egg salad

I like to just boil a whole dozen eggs at a time. This way you can whip this sandwich out super fast and the extra eggs can be snacks throughout the week. I have kept this salad over night in the refrigerator and although it can turn ever so slightly brown, it's still delicious the next day.

To pick a ripe avocado, hold it top to bottom with your forefinger and thumb. It should yield ever so slighty to the touch. Please don't pick them up and start squeezing away at the body. It leaves bruises on the avocado you can't see until you scoop it out.

This recipe is also perfect for a party dip. Serve it with veggies, crackers or small pieces of whole grain bread. I hope you like it as much as my husband. He doesn't like mayo so this is perfect and WAY better for you!

      That's funny you should say that! My husband hates mayo too and this is perfect for him! Why not get max nutrition for your calories?

      Wow, this is great! I love avocados and I hate mayonnaise. But I used to love egg salad sandwiches growing up. I am definitely going to give this a try - I always have a ton of avocados on hand! Thanks!

      You can always use the avocado and just put in less mayo!

      I think I might try it. I make egg salad regularly. I love avacado but I also love mayo.

      It will become your new favorite. You can play around with how much lemon you add for a super bright flavor. Start with the smallest amount then add until your palate is happy! My husband and I love it on rye bread but it will taste great on any whole grain bread!

      I love this idea. Avocado is such a creamy and nutritious ingredient. Then add onion, garlic, and mustard...this is a winner. Unfortunately for me, I had my egg salad (traditionally made with mayo) yesterday. But this is on my menu for next week. Pinned!

      It is different! Think of all the added nutrition ,taking out the mayo and using avocado instead! If you going to consume calories, make sure they are good ones!
