  • 3 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, pepper and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Halve eggs and discard 4 of the yolks (or save for another use). Add whites and the remaining 4 yolks to the bowl and mash to desired consistency. Gently stir in carrot, cucumber and scallions.
  • To hard-boil eggs, place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 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.

Best egg salad Made this salad today for lunch & it is a huge hit with my family. I substituted the cucumber for chopped celery because I do like more of a crunch and I served cucumber slices on the side. Pros: On hand ingredients
