SkinnyMinnie Egg Salad

I love eggs and egg whites. They are a great source of protein and I tried looking for new ways to eat them instead of just a plain ol’ egg white scramble. So I came up with a healthy egg salad!

I am not a fan of mayo, in fact I hate it! I don’t like regular mayo, light, fat free, olive oil, etc. If it’s a mayo, I won’t touch it.

So I had to come up with an alternative that’s not only mayo free, but good for the waistline!

Like I’ve said before, I’m not a calorie counter. I just make smart choices and watch what I eat. SInce I’ve started this blog, I’ve realized a lot of people DO calorie count, and they want to know how many calories are in my recipes. So I will do my best to add them each time!

Speaking of calories… This egg salad (BREAD INCLUDED for a sandwich) has only 175 calories  and 3.5g of fat per serving! WOW!

Compare that to regular egg salads that have over 700 calories per serving and over 65 grams of fat! Holy moly…

For this recipe you will need:

-4 hardboiled eggs (You are going to use all off the egg whites and just ONE yolk)
-1/4 cup of diced white onion
-1 Tablespoon of diced kosher dill pickles
-1 Tablespoon of pickle juice
-1 1/2 Tablespoon of Silken Tofu (get me at Trader Joes or any health food store)
-1/4 teaspoon of paprika
-salt and pepper to taste

Start by making your hard-boiled eggs. For the perfect egg, bring water to a boil with the eggs in the pot, cover and remove from heat. Let them sit covered for 12 minutes, drain the water, and put in a cold water bath for 5 minutes. Perfect egg!

Make sure they are completely submerged

While you are waiting for them to finish, let’s put together the mix

In a bowl add the silken tofu.

Use this as a substitute for any creamy texture, without the added fat!

This is what it looks like in the box. Don’t let it scare you! Once you open it you must keep leftovers refrigerated

You need to mash it up really good with a spoon to get it a creamy consistency

Now let’s add the spices!

Next, chop up your pickle and onion and add that in with the extra pickle juice 🙂

Chopped up pickle and onion

Mix it up good!

Now peel your eggs. You will add only ONE yolk to this. Chop up the 4 whites and one yolk and mix together

Mmmmm eggs

Add this to the bowl…

And mix together!

Makes 2 servings 

I put this on some whole wheat toast! ( The kind I use is 45 calorie, Sara Lee– you can find it in any local grocery store) I also had an apple on the side. So delicious and healthy 🙂

I have to say this is my favorite recipe I’ve done so far. It is SO good!

Happy eating…

XOXO With a Cherry On Top,

  1. Again, lol I know I asked this on another recipe, but can you use plain Greek yogurt in place of the silken tofu? Can I do this sub for anything creamy? Mayo, sour cream etc subs?

    • You can, but the greek yogurt may be a tad tangy for the egg salad. I don’t like mayo, but mayo would certainly work as well. Just keep it light so it stays skinny minnie 🙂
