This is an easy-to-make avocado egg salad with chia seed.

Hi Friends! As I was preparing food to take along to the Indiana State Fair llama shows, I came up with this avocado egg salad recipe that is made with avocado instead of mayonnaise or mustard. It was a bit of an experiment, but I really liked it. Even my llama training students, who are teenage girls, tried it and liked it! I ate this for breakfast in the morning in the show barn. I had also prepared turkey bacon before the event, broke it into two-inch strips and had it stored in the cooler. We used it along with gluten-free rice crackers as dipping sticks for the avocado egg salad. It was all very tasty, but I did find the rice crackers to be fairly salty. When I make the salad again, I’ll eat it plain or on a romaine lettuce leaf.

A super simple recipe for egg salad that uses avocado rather than mayonnaise or mustard.
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 avocado, peeled and seed removed, smashed
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tablespoon dry chia seed (I use black chia, but other types work well too)
  • 1 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil (I used basil grown in our garden)
  • Several drops hot sauce if desired (I used about .25 teaspoon of Louisiana hot sauce)
  1. Mash the avocado in a bowl, then add the minced garlic clove and mix together. Add the other ingredients to the avocado and stir together. Chill and serve.
