This rich and creamy avocado egg salad makes the perfect side dish or protein-packed lunch. Just another reason to love the recipe? It can turn into a delicious and satisfying low-carb, keto-friendly, and paleo-friendly lettuce wrap in seconds. Thanks to the healthy fats jam-packed into the eggs and avocado, this dish is sure to keep you full and energized (with no carb crash!) long into the day.

  • 2 small avocados, pitted, peeled, and diced
  • 5-6 Nellie's Free Range Eggs, hard-boiled, peeled, and diced
  • 8 strips thick cut bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Red onion for garnish (optional)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • In a medium bowl, combine diced avocados with the Greek yogurt and lemon juice. Mix until well blended and creamy.
  • In a separate large bowl, combine the diced eggs with crumbled bacon and cilantro.
  • Fold the avocado mixture into the egg mixture until combined. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Garnish with red onion, cilantro, and more bacon if desired.
  • Serve immediately (to avoid browning of the avocado) as a side dish or pack for a healthy lunch. If you're following a keto, paleo, or low-carb diet, scoop egg salad onto a few large pieces of bib lettuce and roll into a lettuce wrap.

I had Nellies Eggs for breakfast and was really impressed. Tasted just like my fathers eggs from the 30's, 40's, 50's and 60's in Pennsylvania......good and Fresh!


We're so honored by your praise, SueAnn, and it always means a little extra to us when it comes from someone who truly knows what farm fresh eggs should taste like!
