Passover Avocado Egg 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.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Ready Time : 15 min




  • 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.

    Avocados are more expensive in Israel so its a great way to bulk up the guac, add protein and save some shekels. Todah Rabah

    silly question:

    how do you get the avocado circles so perfect without pit interfering?

    thank you!

    • NOT SILLY AT ALL – it’s an illusion… the slices of onion are covering the cut in the avocado round. Peel the avocado. Cut a slice crosswise around the pit and carefully slide the slice up and off the pit. You may need to cut a small slit in the slice to make this easier. Cover any slits with an onion or egg slice.

  5. How did you slice the avocados like this?

  6. I always put finely chopped egg in my guac! Gives it some protein…,texture and taste!
