    Default Egg Salad Alternatives

    Yesterday I got a craving for egg salad, so last night I had the kids boil up four eggs. I didn't need that much egg salad for the sandwich I would make for today's lunch, but I knew that at least three of my four children would want a bite of my egg salad because they love it so much.

    So.

    I chopped four hard-boiled eggs, added two squirts of brown mustard and about two tablespoons of regular mayo, added a couple of shakes each of salt and pepper and a small handful of chopped green onion, and stirred the whole batch together.

    The result was so good I ate it in the car on the way to work this morning... don't know what I'll do for lunch.

    The one thing I didn't like about egg salad is the mayo. It's delicious, but just has too much fat. So what are some alternative ways to make egg salad without regular mayo? I thought maybe a light sour cream and dill might work.

    Thoughts?

    Light mayo?

    Maybe try something like some plain yogurt or light sour cream?

    I have never done this before, but maybe hummus... (?) That might actually be gross, or it could potentially be very good (just not like your standard egg salad). Chop up some scallions in there or something. It might work...

    Light mayo is nasty.

    I have a co-worker who recommends light Miracle Whip, however. I might try that.

    WELL THEN ... you haven't tried this one:

    Hellmann's® Mayonnaise Dressing With Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    Half the fat, I like it anyways ...

    OR, have you made egg salad with sandwich spread? Yummy too: Hellmann’s | Sandwich Spread

    Again, half the fat of regular mayo.

    i'd whip some hummus up with the eggs. also if you're being calorie conscious, try eggs beaters (egg whites) mixed with hummus. i hummus. i also don't eat white bread anymore since i discovered sandwich thins.

    gromit, your mention of hummus got me thinking... what if instead of mayo, I just used a little olive oil and maybe a squeeze of lime along with the chopped scallions?

    Mmm. Now I'm getting hungry again.
