Keto Avocado Egg Salad

Keto Avocado Egg Salad

There are many options for low-carb salads and this one takes the cake – coming in at just 5g of carbs. If you are really watching your intake, or are just in need of a low-key day, know that this keto avocado egg salad is just the one to keep your numbers right where they should be. As a bonus: it is incredibly easy to make, you can store it in the fridge till you are ready to eat and it just so happens to taste pretty darn good too.

For a successful egg salad it takes mayo, there is no substitute for the real thing. Here is how to make homemade mayonnaise from the comfort of your own kitchen. It is a recipe that you will want to memorize, because it is ultra-useful in many dishes, it also makes a great base for a dipping sauce – just saying. As far as quality of eggs, seek out free-range if you can find it, opt for organic and if duck eggs happen to be available near you, then try them out too – the rich yolk will become a lovely reddish-orange hue when cooked and add some additional color interest to the plate.

You can scoop the egg salad onto a bed of fresh leaves, or concoct a fancy lettuce wrap. When in doubt, a rasher or two never hurts to protein it up a notch – just fry it well and sprinkle the golden crumbles on top.
