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.
