Equipment

  • 1 Mixing bowl
  • 1 Whisk or fork
  • 1 Saucepan
  • 1 slotted spoon
  • 1 Knife
  • 1 Cutting Board
  • 1 Bowl for Ice Bath
  • 1 Spoon or spatula for mixing

Ingredients
  

  • 2 large hard boiled eggs
  • 2 tbsp nonfat plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp pickle relish
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions
 

  • Start by peeling the hard-boiled eggs and roughly chop them into small pieces.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the chopped eggs, Greek yogurt, pickle relish, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly combined.
  • Taste the mixture and adjust the seasoning if needed, adding more salt, pepper, or other spices according to your preference.
  • If desired, add any optional toppings or add-ins like diced celery, red onions, or capers for extra texture and flavor.
  • Once mixed, cover the bowl and refrigerate the Greek yogurt egg salad for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  • After chilling, give the salad a final stir and it's ready to be enjoyed! Use it as a filling for sandwiches, wraps, or eat straight from the bowl.

Notes

Feel free to customize the seasoning according to your taste preferences. Adjust the salt, pepper, and other spices to suit your liking.
Allow the Greek yogurt egg salad to chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving. This enhances the flavors and makes it easier to spread on sandwiches or use as a dip.
