Yes my friend you read that right, I said epic avocado egg salad and I stand firm by my declaration!

One taste I think, no wait, I know, you’ll agree.

!00%, without question!

I know traditionally egg salad is made with eggs and mayonnaise and as much as I love a good mayonnaise (especially if we’re talking about Sir Kensington’s or Primal Kitchen  –  yummmmmmm  ❤️❤️❤️) I find it tends to be a little overpowering and when used solely to dress a salad you know?!

Which is why I decided to sub avocado in place of the traditional mayo. That way we get to keep that deliciously creamy texture without overpowering the whole dish.

Genius right?!

Although, you can’t really go wrong putting egg and avocado together can you?!

Eggs and avocado are combined with a leeeeetle bit of mayo (which is totally optional but highly recommended because I personally think it adds a slight richness that, when combined with the avocado, is what takes this egg salad to the next level!), a sprinkling of garlic powder, a touch of salt and pepper and a cheeky squeeze of lemon juice. So simple to throw together but you guys . . . it’s so, so good!

A deliciously simple, seriously epic, match made in heaven.

And you guys, this egg salad . . . is 100% heaven sent!

It’s luscious, creamy and full of flavor and I know you are going to absolutely love it.

I mean who doesn’t love a good egg salad?!

To be honest I have been making this egg salad for a loooonnnngggggg time now I just haven’t really told you about it because well . . . it’s not the prettiest of dishes is it?!

But, I decided it was time.

I mean, it’s just to delicious to keep to all to myself and I assure you, what it lacks in looks it totally makes up for in flavor.

It really is an absolute taste sensation and seriously epic in more ways than one!

It’s super quick and easy to prepare made with just a handful of ingredients that I bet you have on hand already and comes together in just 5 minutes!

It also happens to be naturally gluten free, dairy free and paleo friendly as well as 100% Whole30 compliant but, most importantly, it’s insanely delicious, seriously nutritious and something the whole family will absolutely adore!

It’s packed with protein and heart healthy fats which means that not only is it all kinds of delicious but, it’s guaranteed to keep you feeling full and satisfied for hours on end.

It’s the perfect anytime dish!

I love to serve mine in lettuce cups because;

1 – I’m kind of obsessed with them (see 👉🏻 here,👉🏻  here,👉🏻  here and 👉🏻  here)

2 – I adore the contrast in texture and that cool, crisp freshness that the lettuce leaves bring to the table and,

3 – That way I can eat them straight off my chopping board which means I have less dishes to wash which = winning at life because, washing dishes, doing laundry and ironing, like burpees, are the devil. The less of that stuff I have to deal with the better, can I get an Amen?!

Sorry, I got a little carried away there . . .

Where was I . . .

Serving my epic avocado egg salad in lettuce cups, right.

I love the serve them in lettuce cups along with some pickled radish, because I just cant stop, and some fresh dill because it just seemed like a good idea at the time and you know what?! It really was so I strongly suggest you do the same.

And always with a dash (or two) of hot sauce.


Serve them with a couple of slices of crispy bacon or smoked salmon along with some crisp and crunchy, deliciously simple, perfectly roasted baby potatoes and have yourself a killer breakfast.

Or, you could eat it with some of your favorite crackers, roll it up in a tortilla or even on toast or as a sandwich for a quick and easy yet seriously satisfying lunch.

Or, you could enjoy it with some steak, sausage or protein of choice along with some perfectly roasted pumpkin for an absolutely amazing dinner.

However you choose to eat it you really can’t go wrong!

All natural, quick and easy. light, fresh, luscious, creamy, deliciously simple, seriously epic avocado egg salad lettuce cups that are jam packed full of flavor . . .

Make them. Eat them. Love, love, love them.
