Passover Avocado Egg Salad

Passover Egg and Svocado Salad

I should have named this “My Sister’s Mother-in-Law’s Israeli Guacamole.” But that seemed like a mouthful (plus it didn’t fit). I have made a ton of good guacs in my short cooking career but I never thought to add egg until I saw her do it. Sometimes you just need someone else to give you the simplest idea.

  • 6 ServingsServings


  • 1 medium red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 avocados, peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 6 teaspoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lemon, cut into 6 wedges


Arrange onion, egg, and avocado slices on salad plates, slightly overlapping so each person receives 3 slices of each. Sprinkle with cilantro, olive oil, salt and pepper and serve with a wedge of lemon on the side.

Can also be served on a large platter or turned into guacamole: mash up avocado with olive oil, salt, pepper and lemon juice, stir in cilantro, finely diced red onion, and diced egg and serve with matzah.
