Classic egg salad is usually keto-friendly as it is. But because fat=good, we added an extra creamy, but healthy element: avocado! The whole thing tastes nice and fresh but trust us, it’ll really fill you up—even in a lettuce cup. Do we recommend serving it with crispy bacon? Of course we do. 

Luckily, mayonnaise is keto friendly allowing us to keep it as the base of the salad. As long as your mayonnaise doesn’t have any added sugar, and most don’t, you’re good to have mayonnaise on keto. Bacon, eggs, and avocado are also great additions to the keto diet making this a perfect egg salad! Serve it in lettuce cups or on its own for a perfect lunch or side. We even think the salad would be great with some nacho cheese crisps! Why not??
