Frequently Asked Questions

Is It Necessary To Use Lemon Juice?

You can use lime juice or vinegar, but make sure to add it because it prevents the avocado from browning as well as providing freshness.

Can I Add Other Ingredients To The Salad?

Yes, you can add capers, chopped celery, jalapeno, or spices like paprika or cayenne pepper.

How Long Can I Store The Avocado Egg Salad In The Fridge?

This salad is best eaten fresh, but keeps in the fridge for 1-2 days, although some browning may occur.

Can I Use Guacamole Instead Of Fresh Avocado?

You can! Guacamole already has lime or lemon juice in it, so don’t add any extra.

How Do I Serve Avocado Egg Salad If I’m Avoiding Bread?

You can serve it over a bed of greens, as a filling for lettuce wraps, or on top of cucumber slices as an appetizer.

How Do I Boil Eggs Perfectly For This Recipe?

Place room-temperature eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring the water to a boil, turn off the heat, cover, and let sit for 10 mins. Cool then under running cold water to peel.

Can I Make The Egg Salad Creamier?

You can mash it to your desired consistency, adding more mayo if needed.

Can I Add Or Substitute Herbs?

Absolutely! You can add cilantro, or skip the herbs altogether if you don’t have any.

What Can I Do To Prevent The Avocado From Browning If I Have Leftovers?

You need to keep oxygen away from the salad. You can achieve this by pressing plastic wrap directly on top of the salad surface. Refrigerate any leftovers.
