A Healthy Twist on the Traditional: Avocado Egg Salad

Featured BlogHer Network Post

Easter is tomorrow, and it's well-timed that this upcoming week is also National Egg Salad Week. This recipe is a great way to use those Easter eggs (once your kids have finished locating them all), and features a nice twist for those who aren't big fans of mayonnaise-based salads. Though there's a little mayo in the recipe, most of the salad's base comes from creamy avocados, instead.

The avocados are an awesome sub for much of the mayo typically found in many egg salad recipes. Plus they add delicious creaminess, not to mention the elite status of being considered a superfood. The seasonal radishes add the crunch and color (speaking of color, keep in mind your egg salad will have more of a green tint than yellow, thanks to the avocados), and the lemon zest adds a touch of sunny citrus.
