Let's be honest. What are our thoughts on egg salad?
If you would have asked 10-year-old Heather (ok, 20-year-old too) I would have snubbed my nose and say NO THANK YOU.
But here is the funny thing. As we mature and grow, so do our taste but and man I am so thankful!
If you have never had egg salad, I get it, it sounds weird and maybe a little like "uhhh, I dunno..."
But trust me. There is something about it that feels so cozy and comforting. This lightened up egg salad especially! And you are not losing any of the flavor of a traditional egg salad.
This is full of fresh herbs and spices that elevates this dish to anouther level.
So when your mind and soul are in need of a comforting lunch or snack, but you don't want all the guilt of an indulgent treat - make yourself some lightened up egg salad.
You won't be sorry. This is how I like to make Lightened Up Egg Salad. Just 4 easy steps!
Step 1: Make hardboiled eggs in your preferred method. Once cooled, peel the hard-boiled eggs. Remove 3 of the yolks from 3 of the hard-boiled eggs.
Step 2: Add 3 whole eggs to a food processor and the 3 whites. Pulse until chopped finely. Add to a bowl.
Step 3: To the bowl with the chopped eggs, add in the yogurt, mustard, spices and fresh herbs. Mix until combined.
Step 4: Enjoy! My preferred way is to toast a piece of sprouted whole grain bread, some sliced avocado, smoked salmon, this egg salad, topped with more fresh chives, pepper, and salt. It is everything!
Lightened-up egg salad is perfect for lunches during the week! It is healthy, filling and oh so satisfying. Plus it takes no time to make as you see above and can last you the whole week.
Bless these easy, healthy meals that don't skimp on any of the flavor!Print
