How do you like your egg salads?
Do you take the classic approach with mayonnaise? Season it up with curry powder like my Curried Egg Salad?
Mixed up with pesto? Studded with sun-dried tomatoes?
Sexy and mayo-free mixed up with mashed avocado?
And since we’re talking preferences, what’s your relationship with the herb like?
Do you herb infrequently? On special occasions? Once a week? On the daily? Are you a wake n’ herb-er?
This recipe is a re-visit to one of the most popular recipes on my site – the Mayo-Free Avocado Egg Salad.
You all embraced that recipe so hard, that I figured I would bring it back with a twist.
I added some fresh herbs in order to boost the flavor and fresh appeal.
I know, I know…nothing revolutionary considering the recipe stayed exactly the same, but lemme tell you…some fresh basil, sage, rosemary, and thyme turns this thing into a whole new vegetarian animal.
How to Make Herby Avocado Egg Salad Sandwiches:
Boil eggs on the stove top for 10 minutes, then transfer them to an ice bath until completely chilled.
Mash up an avocado and a half, peel and chop up your hard boiled eggs, and mix the two together with some cider vinegar (or lemon juice), sea salt, and freshly chopped herbs.
You can use the egg salad on sandwiches with baby spinach, or add a scoop to your green salad for some protein.
