Low Carb Avocado Egg Salad is a healthier twist on the classic favorite and the perfect way to use up your hard boiled eggs. Best of all, it’s super creamy and keto friendly.
It’s one of my favorite things to make for lunch. I am a big big avocado fan and love swapping it in recipes to lighten things up. The addition of avocado makes this egg salad super creamy and the Dijon adds that classic tangy flavor.
Plus, if you’ve got leftovers, this egg salad makes a great lunch for spring parties or summer picnics.
You can enjoy this egg salad alone with a fork (totally guilty), in lettuce wraps or use these coconut wraps to keep these low carb and keto-friendly.
