They‘re high in vitamin D and choline as well. The latter can help boost your metabolism. This is a great nutrient to add to your diet when you‘re trying to lose weight.

This egg salad recipe contains extra protein from greek yogurt. The greek yogurt is a much healthier option than using traditional mayonnaise.

Why? Well, there are fewer calories and less fat in greek yogurt. You can eat this salad plain or serve with lettuce cups. A bit of crunchiness makes the salad even more enjoyable!

How to Make Keto Egg Salad

Step 1. You will need hard-boiled eggs for this recipe. Start by gently placing your eggs into a saucepan. Add cold water to cover the eggs. You want to have about an inch of water above the eggs.

Then, place the saucepan on the stove and turn the heat on high. Bring the water to a boil. Next, cover the saucepan with a lid and lower the heat. Let the eggs cook for 12 minutes.

Once the eggs are done, immediately remove them from the water. Place them in a bowl filled with iced water. This will stop the eggs from cooking any further, and the shells will be easy to peel.

Step 2. Now, bring all of the eggs to a cutting board. Chop them up into small pieces for the salad.

Step 3. Stir together eggs, greek yogurt, lemon juice, mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper, and 1 tablespoon of fresh parsley. Gently mix everything.

Step 4. Garnish with the remaining parsley and serve.

How to Store Egg Salad

But what if you have leftovers? They will still be fine.

Store the egg salad in a glass food container. If the salad does get a little watery, simply pour off the excess water. Then mix everything back together to incorporate again.
