Quick & Easy Skinny Egg Salad Recipe Is What's for Dinner Tonight

Making an easy dinner tonight and egg salad is on the menu. During the warm spring and summer months, this is what to make for dinner!

The creamy skinny egg salad recipe is made with hardboiled eggs, Dijon mustard, low-fat Greek yogurt, fresh chopped chives, paprika and chopped dill pickles. The eggs are chopped and then mixed with the other ingredients. So quick and easy. 

Instead of the dill pickles, you can add 1/2 cup finely chopped celery, sweet red bell pepper or green onions. You could also use fresh dill, thyme or parsley instead of the chives. Serve this egg salad wrapped in lettuce for the skinny version or pile on top of lettuce. You could also use it as a sandwich filling. Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to three days.

You inspired me to make this for lunch. Yummy! I put a little chopped red onion and fresh jalapeno in place of the dill pickles. Enjoyed every bite.
That looks good. We love egg salad.
