Protein Packed Skinny Egg Salad

Here's the Dish

Being that it is Easter Sunday in a few days…There are bound to be some hard boiled eggs to be decorated! Eggs have been associated with Easter because they are a symbol of rebirth and renewal! If you are looking for a quick and easy recipe to use up those hard boiled eggs, look no further! This is a ‘Skinny’ version of Egg Salad that is packed with protein, and bursting with flavor! 

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 5 minutes.

1

Start by hard boiling eggs: Place eggs in a medium saucepan and cover them with cold water. (Be sure the tops of the eggs are covered by at least an inch of water.) Bring the water to a full boil, (uncovered), then bring heat down to medium, so water is simmering but not boiling. Let eggs cook over medium heat for 15 minutes, then remove from heat. Immediately place pot in the sink and run cold water in the pot, letting the cold water run over the eggs for about 2-3 minutes. Remove the boiled eggs from the pot and peel. 

2

To make the Egg Salad: Chop the eggs and egg whites coarsely and put them into a medium bowl. Add the bacon, celery, and green onions/chives, or sweet pickles if desired.

3

In small bowl, mix together the mayo, mustard, Greek yogurt, and salt and pepper. Gently stir the mayo dressing into the bowl with the eggs and vegetables. Add paprika if desired. Enjoy chilled by itself, or on a wrap, whole grain toasted bread or on a sandwich thin!
