This healthier twist to traditional egg salad scores big points with us! This protein and fiber packed recipe incorporates creamy avocado and just a small amount of mayo. Perfect for lunch or a light dinner that will satisfy your taste buds and keep you full.

What you’ll need:

•    4 large hard-boiled eggs, chopped

•    4 hard boiled egg whites, chopped (remove the yolks and discard)

•    1 medium avocado, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (soft, ripe avocado works best)

•    1 tbsp. light mayonnaise (we like Kraft mayo with olive oil)

•    1 tbsp. fat free plain yogurt (we prefer Greek)

•    2 teaspoons red wine vinegar (OR finely chopped Kosher dill pickle spear)

•    1/2 tbsp. finely chopped chives

•    1/2 tsp. Kosher salt

•     Pinch of freshly ground pepper

Directions:

Combine the egg yolks with the avocado, light mayo, yogurt, chives, vinegar, salt and pepper. Mash with a fork. Combine with egg whites and adjust salt as needed. 

*Note – the best way to remove the meat of your avocado is to cut in half around the pit (feels like a ball) then gently pull apart. Then take a spoon and scoop the avocado out from around the edges of the skin.

Enjoy plain, atop one half of a whole-grain sandwich thin (shown on left) or on a whole-grain wrap, such as a Flatout whole-wheat wrap (shown on right). It also tastes great on a bed of tomatoes!
