Traditional egg salad is often made with lots of mayonnaise, which makes it really heavy. To make it healthier, I make mine with Greek yoghurt and a just a tiny bit of mayo, and you can't even tell the difference. Usually, I make this egg salad when I make finger sandwiches for Afternoon Tea, but it's also really tasty in wrap form. Sometimes I flavor it with mustard, or green onions, and always with sprouts if I make tea sandwiches, but this is the base recipe.
Since it's so easy to make, and keeps well for a couple of days if it's stored properly, I added it to my healthy Road Trip Menu. Instead of bread, I used whole wheat sandwich wraps, and these made for a great lunch for us on our trip to Yellowstone. Instead of eating the horrible park food we were stuck with last time, this time Hubby & I are having picnics in the park every single day, and it has been so lovely. Just as with yesterday's French Picnic sandwich recipes, I kept the components separate to avoid sogginess, and it literary took two second to whip these up.
