Curried Egg Salad

We use plain yogurt in place of mayo and incorporates curry powder, chopped apples, toasted pecans, and minced chives.

  • 5 organic egg whites
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder (your favorite)
  • 3 tablespoons plain greek yogurt
  • 2 big pinches of salt
  • 1/2 small onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 medium apple (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup pecans (toasted and chopped)
  • 1 small bunch of chives (minced)
  1. First off, you need to boil the eggs properly (the key to good egg salad!). Place the eggs in a pot and cover with cold water by a 1/2-inch or so. Bring to a gentle boil. Now turn off the heat, cover, and let sit for exactly seven minutes. Have a big bowl of ice water ready and when the eggs are done cooking and place them in the ice bath for three minutes or so – long enough to stop the cooking.
  2. While the eggs are boiling and cooling, combine the yogurt, curry powder and salt in a tiny bowl. Set aside.
  3. Crack and peel each egg, and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add the curried yogurt, onions, apple, pecans, and chives. Now mash with a fork. Don’t overdo it, you want the egg mixture to have some texture. If you need to add a bit more plain yogurt to moisten up the mixture a bit, go for it a bit at a time. taste and add more salt if needed. Enjoy as-is, or served wrapped in lettuce.
