I love egg salad. Also on the list of things that I love are: avocados, tomatoes, bacon, and scallions, to name a few. This is the absolute perfect lunch.

For one, it combines all of those favorite things listed.

And two, it is packed with protein and healthy fats to fill you up throughout the day, while being super simple to throw together!

This recipe replaces the standard mayonnaise that is ordinarily in egg salad with avocado. It is perfectly creamy and full of flavor!

  1. Looks awesome!
    I’m allergic to tomatoes though, any good suggestions on what to replace that with?

  2. I LOVE all of these ingredients, however I gotta say, I’m a little skeptical about them mixed together.
    Maybe its the texture? Maybe its just me 😉
    I wont knock it until I’ve tried it though……

  3. This turned out sooo good. Made it last night to pack for lunch and I was tempted to eat like half of it after sampling a little.

  4. Any idea how long this will last in the fridge? I’m just trying to figure out if it’ll last a week so I can space it out for lunches. Thanks! Great Idea!

    1. I’d say a day or two at most. The tomatoes and bacon would get quite soft any longer than that.

  5. I’ve done this 3 or 4 times now. I tried the original recipe (substituted turkey bacon) and it was good. The next time I changed it up and did Cilantro and red onions for the scallions and bacon. Kind of a guacamole egg salad. May try some other ingredients in future tries.

  6. I’m going to make this like my standard egg salad and use the avocado as a substitute for mayo… excited to try it. Thanks for the idea!

    1. FYI, Whole30’s Sonoma chicken salad uses avocado instead of mayo, along with red grapes and toasted pecans – we make that all the time.

    1. Hi Kristen…I’ve kept mine for a day or so after making it. The avocado does get a bit brown (doesn’t affect the taste at all).

  7. I made this this evening. Added some horseradish, a little lemon juice and chopped hot peppers. It was delicious! Even without adding my extra touches, is great. My husband loved it too. Will definitely become a go to easy meal. Thank you so much for putting this recipe out there for everyone to enjoy.

  8. i am following whole30 … and find it difficult to find acceptable bacon, since most stores (even in case at whole foods) cure it with sugar. any one have suggestions??

    1. It’s pretty hard to find. The brands that are out there with no sugar taste pretty terrible. (Exception: Pete’s Paleo bacon, available on their site.) I suggest using something like pancetta or prosciutto during Whole30 instead which typically has no sugar.

  9. This was so fabulous. I halved the recipe as I was afraid of no self control and Id eat all of it. I’m def making it again. Yum. I left out the tomatos as I’m not a huge fan. I also used reg white onions. 2 bites in I remembered the bacon I had cooked and forgotten.

    1. Hi Erika…I don’t count calories for my recipe. All you have to do to figure it out is to enter the ingredients into something like MyFitnessPal to get the total then divide by the number of servings you want to split it into.

  10. Oh my gosh!! So good! I whipped it up this morning, only had bacon bits and no tomatoes but it was still yummy. Its for my lunch….but it was partly my breakfast too LOL!

  11. This was so yummy! I was looking for a fast, easy, and tasty recipe for breakfast or lunch. I’m relatively new to Paleo eating, and it’s so nice to find sites like this one that help us newbies out. Thanks!!!
    By the way, my phone wouldn’t let me select five stars, so…..
    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
