Healthy Egg Salad

mains recipes Aug 04, 2021
 

When it comes to lunch, I’m always looking to keep it easy. This time of day, I need some energy to keep me fueled throughout the rest of the afternoon but don’t usually have the time to dedicate to anything elaborate or time-consuming.

This is exactly why having some sort of salad on hand is always a must in my world! Whether it’s this Healthy Egg Salad, my Curry Chicken Salad or Smashed Chickpea Salad, you really can’t go wrong.

Egg salad is something that really takes me back to my childhood, though. It’s a staple that my mom always loved, and I still find myself craving it to this day!

Obviously the main ingredient here is hard-boiled eggs, which you can choose to make yourself or buy pre-made from the grocery store. To make the perfect hard-boiled eggs, you can check out this article here!

Eggs are an ingredient that I always have on hand, as they’re so easy to make (scrambled, fried, hard boiled, you name it) and incredibly nutrient-dense. They’re full of protein and healthy fats and are linked to improvements in cholesterol, reduced risk of stroke and eye health.

For a little creaminess, I used a little bit of Forager dairy-free yogurt, but you’re welcome to use regular Greek yogurt or avocado oil-based mayo if you prefer. This, along with the dijon mustard, acts as a binder and makes your egg salad extra creamy and flavorful!

Likewise, I always like a little crunch, so I included some diced celery and dill pickles. These provide some tang as well, which is always a must for me.

For some extra flavor, garlic powder and paprika are two staples that I just think make everything better.

Just mix these ingredients together, and you’ll have a prepped lunch to last you a few days. I love making this egg salad into a sandwich, serving on top of greens or gluten-free crackers. You really can’t go wrong.

I hope you give this easy, healthy lunch a try!
