Sweet Pickle Egg Salad





Recipes abound for egg salad, but the hub and I like mine best because it has just the right amount of pickliness with the relish and spicey brown mustard. If you want it more colorful, add chopped red bell pepper. I like to hard boil several eggs at a time to use when convenient. They’ll keep in the firdge up to one week.

Makes: 4 servings, about 3/4 cup each  Total Time: 15 minutes




Ingredients 3 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt 3 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise 2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 1/8 teaspoon salt 8 hard-boiled eggs, peeled 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Instructions 1.Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, mustard, pepper, salt, sweet pickle relish, and lemon juice in a medium bowl. 2. Chop eggs and add to the bowl. Mash a bit if desired. 3. Stir in celery.

Tip #1: To hard-boil eggs, place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with cool water by 1 inch. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat; when the water has reached a boil, reduce heat to medium-high. Boil for 6 – 7 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and cover the eggs with ice-cold water. Let stand until cool enough to handle before peeling. Tip #2: To peel eggs with a spoon, watch this Mad Genious Tip.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. Let me know if you’ve tried it and how it turned out. Good cooking to you,
