I’ve never been a fan of egg salad because it’s loaded with mayonnaise. I’ve got nothing against mayonnaise (except for the fact that it’s full of saturated fats), but I’m more of a light smear kind of girl.

With Easter around the corner, I wanted to come up with a creative way to use up the inevitable leftover boiled eggs. You can only eat so many deviled eggs, ya know?

In this recipe, we are swapping out mayonnaise for mashed avocado and a touch of yogurt to achieve that ultra creamy texture. It’s like egg salad meets avocado toast – chopped style.

You might be wondering why this recipe is called “gut-healthy.” We’re putting a modern twist on the classic recipe and swapping pickle relish for dill and garlic-flavored sauerkraut! The sauerkraut (fermented cabbage) and yogurt are full of probiotics – the good bacteria that your gut needs to thrive.

If you avoided egg salad before, you’re going to love it now. Trust me. It’s creamy, decadent, tangy, and yet light and fresh tasting. My favorite way to serve it up is on a toasted everything bagel with cucumber slices for crunch and micro greens for extra flavor and nutrients.

I have a feeling this gut-healthy avocado egg salad is one of those recipes that only gets better with age…

Units Scale
  • 2 small ripe avocados
  • 6 boiled eggs

  1. To make the avocado egg salad, cut the avocado into cubes and scoop into a mixing bowl. Use a fork to lightly mash. Roughly chop the eggs and add to the bowl along with the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Mix until well combined.
