WW Recipe of the Day: Low Carb Curried Egg Salad
Classic egg salad brings back the comforting thought of my lunchbox on Wednesdays. I could count on it! Back then my mother used only mayonnaise (a lot!).
I've brought her recipe up to date with curry powder, plan Greek yogurt and just a hint of low fat mayo. Many decades later, it's still at the top of my list for a quick and scrumptious breakfast, lunch or dinner. This recipe is all-meal friendly.
Taught to me by an Indian chef who has also loved this since her childhood in India where a curried egg salad version apparently was served regularly.
Watch out when buying curry powder as the heat in each formula may vary. So if you like very spicy, look for hot curry. For all-purpose use, I usually use mild curry powder.

How to Make Curried Egg Salad Step-By-Step
Step 1: Gather and prepare the ingredients.
Step 2: Add the chopped hard boiled eggs, green onion, almonds, yogurt, mayonnaise, curry powder, red pepper flakes and parsley to mixing bowl.
Stir until ingredients are well mixed. Season to taste with salt.
Step 3: Enjoy on toast, plate of mixed greens, in lettuce wraps, etc., or your favorite way to enjoy egg salad.
Boiling eggs is so simple, but it is hardly easy to get perfect ones every time. Here's a system that really works:
Bring water to cover the eggs to a boil and bring to a rolling bowl. Turn off the heat, cover the pan and let the eggs steep for 10 minutes. Remove the cover and place the eggs in cold water. Perfect every time!
The salad is firm and a scoop will easily hold it's shape on a plate of spinach or any lettuce.
Also, it is delicious as an open-face pumpernickel or whole grain sandwich.
Tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, celery are also good added crunchy flavor.
