I love whipping up this quick avocado egg salad sandwich when I have all the ingredients. Some of my other favorite healthy sandwiches are Egg Tomato and Scallion Sandwich, Breakfast BLT and Omelet Tortilla Breakfast Wrap.

Easiest tip to make a sandwich lighter is to make it open-faced. To make a lighter egg salad, I use half the yolks so I am still getting the health benefits from using some of the yolks, plus I add some mashed avocado which makes it creamy and full of healthy fats.


  • If you’re not a fan of salmon or lox you can substitute for another protein, sliced tomatoes or leave it out.
  • You can make this with a classic egg salad.
  • If you are gluten free you can use gluten free bread.
  • You can even turn these into appetizer style bites by using crackers or cucumber slices in place of the bread.

This is great for breakfast or lunch. If you’re only making one serving, you can refrigerate the egg salad in an airtight container. Enjoy!

  1. Hi, I am Dutch and I’m using the dutch WW. Could you make the WW buttons functional for different countries? Thank you. Love your recipes.

  2. Just made this today for lunch and it was delicious! I omitted the cucumber but may use them another time. Will definitely make again. Thanks!!

  3. Wait, is this 1/2 plus 2 ounces of avocado? Or is it 2 ounces? Looking forward to trying this. I’m starting with 2 ounces in my experiment and will add more if it doesn’t taste right.

  4. Sure sounds yummy yo me, but it’s too much cholesterol to have, just from this one thing, let alone what else you’ll be having the rest of the day.  Anything over 50 mg. (total per meal) is too much, & considered unhealthy by most dieteticions.  

  5. Love this healthy breakfast. My boyfriend requests it and he doesn’t even like egg salad! Awesome recipe.

  6. Yummy! I added arugula under the egg salad to get a few more veggies in. Quick, easy, tasty, and filling!

  7. If you ever in your life make only one Skinnytaste recipe, make this one. Personally I substitute sliced red onion for the cucumber, but go to town and have a ball with this marvelous recipe.

    Marvelous sandwich! I can’t throw away egg yolks, so i used 4 whole eggs. I also make my own mayo so mine wasn’t light. Very satisfying lunch. Thanks Gina!

  9. Finally got on the avocado toast band wagon. I “cheated” with wholly guacamole simply avocado, and use one tablespoon of it on the toast. Love smoked salmon , and did this with an over easy egg. Only problem is stopping at only one toast! Avocado makes a nice sub for what would have been reduced fat cream cheese on this.

  10. I think I was the last person on the planet to hear about avocado toast a few weeks ago, but I quickly fell in love and keep looking for inspired variations to try. It’s become a weekend brunch thing at our house, so I’m counting down the days (it’s Monday) to make your salmon and avocado-egg salad. Looks so yummy, I’m afraid I’ll be drooling in anticipation by Friday!

  11. I’ve been enjoying avocado sandwiches since 1981, when I was 26 yrs. old. These days I enjoy them in my green smoothies as often as I can, but they are so delicious I always too soon. I have pictures of my 50 oz. apple, carrot, kale, beet, radish, celery, ginger, and flaxseed & ground avocado seed daily a.m. Smoothie on Facebook.. I weigh 175lbs. , which was my weight when I was 19 yrs. old & I feel like a million bucks. May God Bless Y’all with a long, healthy, and happy life.

  12. This has quickly become a staple meal in my house! We don't really like mayo, so I've been using garlic hummus instead–and it works perfectly.

  13. Was desperate for breakfast ideas, found this, didn't have salmon on hand so subbed it with roast turkey breast … and it worked! Good and also filling.

  14. This looked so yummy that I had to make it even though I had never had lox before. Now that I've had this, I find myself craving it often. It is so tasty and satisfying. Thanks for the delicious recipes that prove eating healthy can be easy AND delicious.

  15. Delicious! Had two last night for a very filling dinner under 500 cal…will attempt some self-control today and limit myself to one for lunch!:)

  16. The day this recipe came out, I ran out to the grocery store at lunchtime from work, got all of the ingredients, and made it in the kitchen at the office. Had it for 3 days in a row. SO so delish! Combines so many healthy & tasty things packed into one meal. Yum! Thanks so much for this one!

  17. I've made this twice already and it's incredible! I went ahead and left in all the yolks, so not quite as "skinny" as intended, but will definitely keep this in the rotation!

  18. Made this without mayo, used Honey Smoked Salmon from Costco and Alpine Valley Sprouted Wheat bread, topped with Chia seeds…..amazing & so filling!
