Delicious! This will be a repeater recipe. 🙂
I’m working on my menu for a 100 person Halloween luncheon, and these look perferct! If I needed to make the filling ahead of time, will it discolor due to the avocados? Also, would this taste good on a pumpernickel bread?
YES, The avocado will discolor. I would make filling ingredients ahead but them keep separate, mixing up right before serving, so it looks nice and fresh. It should be great on pumpernickel.
Made this recipe and loved it. Probably the best egg salad I have tasted in many years. I ate it without any bread and it was still very satisfying.
Thanks so much Dianne! Glad you enjoyed it!
Definitely trying this one! I can imagine that the how to bonsai avocado makes for an incredible
I am primarily vegan and have problems finding good plant-based breakfast recipes that don’t require the use of a to of soy or processed foods. I saw this sandwich and had to have it. Mean it made me excited about eating breakfast. i boiled the eggs and thought, “Why waste my good vegan mayo on eggs?” so I decided to replace the eggs with smashed chickpeas. I love herbs so I doubled the cilantro, parsley and dill and the capers because I love them too. And, when I tell you this sandwich gave me life, honey, I mean that! This was so delicious. Im going to make more and let it sit in the fridge overnight to let the flavors get all happy and have it again tomorrow. This will literally be what gets me out of bed in the morning! I needed this in my life. Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU!
Awesome! Great to hear and thanks for the awesome comment. 🙂
Whoa nice idea for the vegan version. You can also use black salt and it will give more egg flavor 🙂
Oooooo- will have to try that!
I just made this in a wrap and it was so good! I’m glad I froze lots of fresh dill over the summer. What would you plate this with for a luncheon to round out the looks and taste?
Mmmmm, that sounds yummy! You could serve it over tender greens or butter lettuce, with a light vinaigrette?
Love the avocado in the egg salad! I used parsley, green onion, and chives. Delicious and adaptable.
Holy cow this is delicious!! I halved the recipe, big mistake, the two of us cleaned the bowl. I’m not a fan of capers yet but I followed the recipe exactly and don’t leave them out they are such a great flavor with the herbs celery and green onions. I was going to make the sandwich but opted to put the avocado on each bread slice and omit it from the egg salad then I made the sandwich open faced cutting each slice into four pieces. I thought I was in London savoring tea sandwiches or should I say wine sandwiches 🙂
I almost didn’t make these because after 38 years I thought I’d tried every egg salad permutation and love my favorites until now…..new and best favorite!! Thank you
thanks for sharing and Im glad you enjoyed it!
This was fabulous, made it today. I will eat the next round minus the bread, the bread takes too much away from the great taste of the egg salad.
Awesome, thanks! I love this over greens or even in a toasty tortilla too!Less bread. 😉
Would it be wrong to have this simply by the spoonful? 🙂 Just made it for my husband’s lunch, and it is tasty!
Hahaha! I think its perfect by the spoonful! Or even in a taco shell!
I would exclude the celery because I’m not a big fan of it. I love the green goddess flavors.
So yummy and perfect for Spring! I just posted about my version.
I made this! Suuuuper tasty and fresh and lovely. I never thought to use capers in egg salad but it turned out awesome. My version is posted on my blog http://bit.ly/1GkJqNg Thanks so much for the inspiration!
What a beautiful sandwich! I have always loved classic egg salad, but I really like how you’ve spruced this up. I especially like the addition of avocado, radish and lemon zest. This must have so much flavor!
I ADORE this… the ingredients are on point, photos are stunning… I’m hungry now. So thanks for that. 😉 So…I went through my leftover eggs already… but guess what. This Sunday is Greek Easter and the hubby is Greek… so I’ll have a BUNCH more eggs, and this is happening next week for lunch. Done. Brown Bagged. Thanks for sharing, girl! xo
Thanks so much Alison…always love making people hungry!! I forgot about Greek Easter..great reason to have more eggs. 🙂
ohh, love it!
Now THIS is a superlative egg salad sandwich. I love egg salad to start with. Well done!I don’t normally talk about ME, but please make note of the slight change from Wild Goose Tea. New web design—whoopee. And adding new features too.
Thanks Carol…and let me know when your site is done…the link didn’t work…you must be still working on it?
