We love egg salad here at GHU. And when said egg salad is filled with good-for-you ingredients Mediterranean-style, we love it even more. This healthy recipe swaps out classic mayonnaise for plain greek yogurt which means less calories and fat and more protein – score!
But don’t worry, you won’t be missing any flavor since it’s filled with olives, sun-dried tomatoes, red onion and various spices. Go ahead, make this for lunch this week in a sandwich or lettuce wrap and take your egg salad to a whole new level.
- 8 large eggs, hardboiled
- 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, drained of excess oil and chopped
- 1/2 cup red onion, chopped finely
- 1/2 cucumber, chopped
- 1/4 cup olives, chopped
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
- Splash of lemon juice
- 1 1/2 teaspoon oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
