Ingredients in my Easy Greek Yogurt Egg Salad
Well, it ain’t egg salad without some boiled eggs. I use 12 whole eggs in this recipe. While boiling eggs on the stove is fairly simple, I prefer to use a Dash hard boiled egg cooker. This egg cooker has come in handy, especially when meal prepping. I like to use a variety of appliances for an efficient meal prep, so cooking my eggs here frees up some room on my stove!
My favorite veggies in egg salad are red onion, celery, and chives. An uncommon veggie that I also like to add is some chopped radish!
Whole Milk Greek Yogurt
Most egg salad recipes use mayo, but I like to replace mayo with whole milk greek yogurt when possible. It has a similar texture and creaminess like mayo, but it adds some additional protein without unnecessary calories from fat. For reference, 1/2 cup of mayo has ~750 calories mainly coming from over 80g of fat. In comparison, 1/2 cup of whole milk greek yogurt has ~110 calories from roughly 10g protein, 5g carbs, and 6g fat. That’s a noticeable difference!
You’ll also need some dijon mustard, salt, and pepper for additional flavor!
