Avocado Egg Salad - low carb, Keto and Paleo friendly

I was inspired to whip up this dish because my daughter has been obsessed with hard-boiled eggs lately. She loves eating them for breakfast or popping them into her lunch bag.

Me? I’m not so much a hard-boiled egg person, unless it’s in a recipe (like my to-die-for Deviled Egg Pasta Salad!).

Our family has decided that Nellie’s Free Range Eggs are the best tasting eggs – hands down – for hard boiled eggs. We also love that they are Certified Humane, which means their hens are handled gently, have the freedom to roam and play outside, and are fed a healthy diet free from antibiotics and added hormones.Avocado Egg Salad - low carb, Keto and Paleo friendly

So, I started with our favorite hard boiled eggs, and added two of my favorite foods ever – avocados and bacon.

meal prep:

I pitted, peeled and diced one avocado, and mixed it with a tablespoon of Greek Yogurt (use mayo if you’re Paleo!) and a squeeze of fresh lemon, until creamy.Avocado Egg Salad - low carb, Keto and Paleo friendly

Next, I chopped up three hard boiled eggs and four pieces of chopped, thick cut bacon.  I added both to the avocado mixture and mixed gently, until just combined. I also added just a bit of fresh salt and pepper to taste. Mmmmm.Avocado Egg Salad - low carb, Keto and Paleo friendly

Next, I added a cilantro and just a bit of red onion for an extra kick of crunch and flavor.

Serve this recipe right away, or pack it up for lunches.

The result is heavenly. I absolutely love the creamy texture of this Avocado Egg Salad.Avocado Egg Salad - low carb, Keto and Paleo friendly

Fancy a little extra crunch? Add a little more red onion, and serve it up in bib lettuce for delish lettuce wraps! Even better – this recipe is great for low carb, Paleo and Keto diets.

Since the avocado will oxidize, I recommend eating this the same day it’s prepared.Avocado Egg Salad - low carb, Keto and Paleo friendly

Avocado Egg Salad

Avocado Egg Salad

Ingredients

  • ? 2 small avocados, pitted, peeled, and diced
  • ? 5-6 Nellie’s Free Range Eggs, hard-boiled, peeled and diced
  • ? 8 strips cooked thick cut bacon, crumbled
  • ? 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • ? 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • ? 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Red onion for garnish (optional)
  • ? Fresh salt and fresh pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. 1. Hard boil the eggs by covering with an inch of water and bringing to a rolling boil. Turn off the heat and keep covered for 10-12 minutes before placing in an ice bath. This step isn’t necessary if the ingredients list already calls for the eggs to be hard-boiled
  2. 2. Meanwhile, place the diced avocados into a bowl with the Greek yogurt (use mayo if you are dairy-free Paleo) and lemon juice. Mix until blended and creamy
  3. 3. Place the peeled and diced eggs into a medium sized mixing bowl along with the chopped bacon and cilantro.
  4. 4. Mix the avocado mixture into the egg mixture until combined. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. 5. Garnish with red onion, cilantro, and more bacon if desired.
  6. 6. Serve immediately as a side dish or pack for a healthy lunch.
  7. If you are Keto, paleo or low-carb, add mixture to bib lettuce for a satisfying lettuce wrap.
