STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS

Avocado egg salad is best served fresh but can be stored in the fridge for 1 day. After that, the avocado will begin to oxidize and turn brown. To store, cover it tightly with plastic wrap or store it in an airtight container.

SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Avocado: If you prefer to make a standard egg salad, you may replace the avocado with a little unsweetened Greek yogurt. I would suggest adding in some chopped onions and peppers for a little more texture and flavor.

RECIPE NOTES

  • The lemon juice in this recipe helps prevent the avocado from browning too quickly. 
  • Add in finely chopped red onions for a little more texture and crunch!
  • Try not to mash the avocado and eggs too much. Leave a few small pieces here in there to offer babies and toddlers a little more texture and variety!
  • Add salt and pepper to taste for adults!
