Minimalist Egg Salad

20 Jul

I’ve had this for breakfast every morning while on my diet- more about that in my next post!  I feel my best with a protein rich breakfast- and I’m still sort-of convinced that eating six whole eggs every day just might give me a heart attack.   Since I’m keeping my carbs super low- around 20g/day, I was planning to have a few hard boiled eggs and egg whites without the yolks (ick!) but tried this instead.  It is egg-cellent!  No mayo, either, and I don’t miss it at all!

Minimalist Egg Salad
Raspberry & Coconut
1 huge serving, about 1.5 cups.

  • 3 whole hard boiled eggs
  • 3 hard boiled egg whites
  • 1-2 T. water
  • 1 T. dill relish (not sweet relish)
  • 1 green onion
  • 2 t. dijon mustard
  • a squirt of hot sauce
  • Salt, pepper, and smoked paprika (if you have it)

Using a fork, smash together your three yolks and everything else aside from the whites.  You’ll get a thick, yellow dressing.  Chop the whites and mix to coat.  Refrigerate overnight and sprinkle with salt and pepper again before serving.
