Variations & Notes
This egg and avocado bowl is a versatile recipe that can be customized to your liking. Here are some ideas on how to switch up this recipe:
- Add fresh herbs – try adding fresh parsley, dill, chives or cilantro. These fresh herbs will really elevate the flavors of this dish.
- Use different veggies – have different veggies on hand? Use what you have! Celery, white onion, broccoli, spinach or kale would all be great additions.
- Use a different dressing – feel free to skip the olive oil and white balsamic vinegar and use a different dressing. This lemon vinaigrette, balsamic vinaigrette or red wine vinaigrette are all great options. If you want more of a classic egg salad vibe swap the olive oil and vinegar with mayonnaise or Greek yogurt and dijon mustard.
How to Serve
This avocado egg salad recipe can be served any time of the day! Enjoy it for breakfast or a light lunch. It’s also a great post-workout snack option since it’s packed with protein and healthy fats.
Though this bowl is filling and delicious on its own, you can also pair it with another dish for a more filling meal. Here are some ideas:
- Serve it with toast: Pair it with a slice of toasted sourdough bread. You can easily scoop the ingredients onto the bread to make a version of avocado toast!
- Pair it with a smoothie: I love enjoying this bowl for breakfast alongside a smoothie. Some of my faves are this dragon fruit smoothie, chocolate peanut butter smoothie, chocolate blueberry smoothie and tahini smoothie. Check out all of my smoothie recipes for more inspiration.
- As a salad topping: You could chop the ingredients finer and use them as a delicious and nutritious topping for a bed of your favorite greens.
- Add more protein: Serve this dish alongside your favorite protein. I love this grilled chicken, air fryer chicken breast or balsamic salmon.
How to Store
This bowl is best enjoyed fresh as the avocado will start browning over time due to oxidation, but with these steps, you can enjoy it a little longer! Here’s what I recommend:
- Refrigerate: Place leftovers in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. They should last up to 2 days. If you’re planning to make this ahead of time, it’s best to store the ingredients separately and combine them when you’re ready to eat.
- How to prevent browning: Since this bowl includes avocado, you can squeeze a little fresh lemon juice or lime juice over it to help prevent the avocado from browning. Also, keeping the mixture in an airtight container with a piece of plastic wrap pressed directly onto the surface of the avocado can help reduce exposure to air and slow down the oxidation process.
