When Easter gives you eggs, make egg salad!

Healthy Egg SaladEgg salad may sound healthy, but it’s a total fat bomb… it’s made up of yolk and mayo.  I happen to love hard-boiled eggs and hate mayo, so I wanted to make a healthy version of egg salad.  Here’s how to turn out a skinny egg white salad.

How To Hard Boil Eggs

First, you’ll have to hard boil your eggs.  My recipe calls for 6, but you can throw the whole dozen in there.

  • Put your eggs in a pot and cover them with cold water.
  • Bring them to a rolling boil.
  • Once the water is boiling, put a lid on the pot and move the eggs to a cool spot.
  • Let them sit for 14 minutes.
  • Strain them, run cold water over them, and let them cool down in the fridge.

No Mayo Egg Salad

Add one tablespoon of greek yogurt, 1/4 teaspoon of dill, and 1/4 teaspoon of paprika to the egg whites.

Egg Salad Recipe

Gently stir until all of the eggs are coated.
