Another lunch idea: Egg "potato" salad!

Egg "potato" salad!

I think this makes a nice lunch, because its got veggies, protein (eggs) and some fats all in one.

I make my own version (sorry, I dont measure exactly)
1 head cauliflower - chopped and steamed.
5 hardboiled eggs
mayo and dijon mustard
diced celery
grated carrot
diced pimento or roasted red peppers (can also use raw red peppers)
a spoolful of dill pickle relish
celery salt
white pepper

And if you're traditional, you can sprinkle a bit of paprika over the top!

Sometimes I add a little fresh chopped dill.
I have also found that i like a little bit of shredded zucchini in this (or in egg salad). Its bland when raw, so it adds a little bit of texture with a mild taste.

You can use sour cream with a squeeze of lemon juice.

Theoretically, greek yogurt can sub for mayo or sour cream... but it sounds weird to me with egg salad! (I've used it with great success in curry chicken salad, but thats getting beyond the scope of this forum)
