A Healthier Egg Salad Recipe
If you are trying to eat healthier or just looking for a lighter egg salad recipe, subbing out with avocados is the perfect choice. Avocado is a good source of fiber, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin E and B6. It also contains monounsaturated fats (the good kind of fat), which can lower cholesterol levels and may help reduce the risk of heart disease. Avocados are also a good source of lutein and zeaxanthin, two antioxidants that help protect your eyes from damage caused by UV light.
Yes, eggs ARE healthy!
In moderation, they can provide you with important nutrients like protein and vitamin D. One large egg contains six grams of protein and ten percent of your daily recommended intake of vitamin D. Eggs also contain choline, a nutrient that’s important for brain health. Choline helps to protect the cells in your brain and keeps them functioning properly.
Eggs are a great source of protein, and they’re low in calories and cholesterol. They also contain important nutrients like vitamin D, B12, and choline. You can use this egg salad for sandwiches, wraps, pita pockets, or on top of a bed of greens. It’s also great scooped with fresh vegetables or whole-grain crackers – or even all by itself!

- 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- In a medium bowl, combine the hard boiled eggs, avocado, lemon juice, garlic powder, green onion, and mustard.
