Healthy Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich (Gluten-Free)

The other day I realized… I haven’t had an egg salad sandwich in YEARS! Growing up, I ate them all the time but to be honest, I kind of just forgot about them. And after making this recipe, I have NO clue why. It’s definitely a classic for a reason. I switched up my recipe by subbing the mayonnaise with creamy avocado, adding extra nutrients and flavor. And you know me, I’m all about the fresh herbs— tarragon and basil really liven it up. Make it for lunch this week— you will love this healthy take on the Egg Salad Sandwich!
