Forever a classic, our egg salad is made with low-fat mayo, Dijon mustard, and chives. Change this up easily by substituting a different herb for the chives and grainy brown mustard for the Dijon. Try this as a delicious sandwich filling, serve it over a tangle of mesclun salad greens, or stuff it into celery sticks or hollowed-out thick-cut cucumber slices for an easy pick-up appetizer.
6 large egg(s)
3 Tbsp, fresh, chopped, divided
Reduced calorie mayonnaise
¼ tsp, freshly ground
1 pinch(es), optional, for garnish
- Place the eggs in a medium saucepan and pour in enough water to cover them; set the pan over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 10 minutes; drain and place the eggs in an ice-water bath.
- When the eggs are cool enough to handle, remove the shells. Chop the eggs into bite-size pieces.
- Transfer the eggs to a medium bowl. Add 2 tbsp chives, mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper; mix until blended. Garnish with the remaining tbsp chives and paprika, if using.
- Serving size: about 1/2 cup
Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of ground paprika for added flavor and color.
