How to Make Egg Salad Bowls

Step 1. To make them, you start by boiling your eggs for 10 minutes in boiling water. Or for extra convenience, you can use an egg maker to boil your eggs.

To prevent your eggs from cracking while boiling, make sure they’re are at room temperature before cooking them.

Once you’ve finished boiling your eggs, place them in some cold water. This will make them easier to peel. Next, peel and chop them and set them aside.

Step 2. In a medium bowl, add Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, lemon zest, salt, and black pepper. Mix well and be prepared for the pleasant aroma.

Chop your celery and add it to your yogurt mixture. If you want more, feel free to add a bit more. Then add your parsley and dill.

Step 3. Add your chopped eggs to the yogurt mixture and stir well so that the dressing coats the eggs.

Step 4. Finally, halve your cherry tomatoes and slice your red onion. Then, remove the avocado flesh from the skin. Plate your veggies in separate sections in each food container. Then add your egg salad.

Make sure you squeeze a bit of lemon juice on your avocado slices. This will prevent them from turning brown.

How to Make Egg Salad Healthier?

First of all, I used non-fat Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise. Non-fat Greek yogurt has less calories and fat than mayonnaise.

As an added bonus, it’s packed with protein, making it a great addition to a high protein diet.

Second of all, I added celery to the egg salad mixture. This adds not only crunch but extra fiber, which helps keep you full.
