Need a healthy and delicious lunch? I thought you might! This keto avocado egg salad recipe a healthy blend of hard boiled eggs, avocado, and seasonings. You might not think of avocado and egg salad as a combination that goes together, but it totally does! I normally make my own avocado oil mayo for classic keto egg salad, but avocado actually makes a creamy swap that’s just as delicious.
You get a similar texture but different flavor profile – because avocado goes with lime, red onions, cilantro, and jalapenos. This combo makes the best avocado egg salad, trust me. 😉
One thing stays the same, though, and that’s time. If you have hard boiled eggs on hand, it comes together in just 10 minutes!

How To Make Avocado Egg Salad
This avocado and egg salad recipe takes just 10 minutes to prep! Here’s how to make avocado egg salad really quickly:
- Mash avocado. Mash the avocado and lime juice with sea salt, leaving some chunks.
- Fold in the add-ins. Add cilantro, red onion, celery, and jalapenos, and fold until just combined. Don’t over mix, so you preserve those avocado chunks!

Keto Avocado Egg Salad Storage Instructions
Can you make it ahead?
While this avocado egg salad recipe is best made fresh, you can make it a day or two in advance if you really want to.
A better option is to mix up the egg salad, but don’t add the mashed avocado until right before serving if you don’t want to deal with brown avocado.
How long does avocado egg salad last?
Avocado egg salad will last for 1-2 days in the refrigerator.
Can you freeze avocado egg salad?
No, I don’t recommend freezing it. Hard boiled eggs get a weird texture when freezing, and the avocado will turn brown.
