Quick and Easy Egg Salad

Here is a classic egg salad recipe that comes together quick and easy. It uses just a few ingredients proving simple is better.

There are several variations you can make to this egg salad. Try using fresh dill or parsley instead of chives. Or add chopped celery instead of dill pickles for that added crunch you crave in an egg salad. Chopped sweet red pepper or green onions would taste great as well!

I served this egg salad on two Outer Aisle Gourmet sandwich thins because I was craving a sandwich! They make excellent sandwiches without all the carbs of traditional bread. Two of these flatbreads count as 1/3 Lean and 2/3 of a Green! I find them at my local grocery store but check out their website for a store near you. 

They also taste delicious wrapped in lettuce. I used iceberg lettuce, but Boston, green leaf, romaine, or butter lettuce are also great choices. Which ever way you decide to eat them, enjoy this simple easy recipe!

Quick and Easy Egg Salad

6 Hard boiled Eggs (2 Leans)
2 tsp dijon mustard (2 Condiments)
4 tbsp low fat plain Greek yogurt (2 Condiments)
2 tbsp fresh chives, finely chopped (1/2 Condiment)
1/4 tsp salt (1 Condiment)
1/4 tsp paprika (1/2 Condiment)
2 dill pickle spear, finely chopped* (1 Optional Snack)

Peel and chop the eggs and put in a medium sized bowl.
Add dijon mustard, Greek yogurt, chives, salt, paprika and pickles. 
Stir gently until combined.
Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container up to 3 days.

Entire recipe makes 2 Servings
Each serving provides:
1 Lean, 3 Condiments, and 1/2 Optional Snack
(Add 3 Greens to complete your Lean and Green meal)

* If you prefer, you can use 1/2 cup of finely chopped celery , sweet red bell pepper, or green onions (1 Green) instead of dill pickles.

To use this egg salad on two Outer Aisle Gourmet sandwich thins,, divide the  entire recipe into 3 Servings instead of 2 Servings. This would give you 3 Servings with 2/3 Lean, 2 Condiments and 1/3 Optional Snack per Serving. Two sandwich thins will make up the other 1/3 Lean and 2/3 of a Greens. Add 2 and 2/3 more Greens to make a full Lean and Green meal.
