I, along with most of you had a large bowl hanging around in my refrigerator with left over Easter Eggs yesterday. Last night I made this recipe for Deviled Egg Salad Dip to use them up. Mr. Wonderful and I came in from a brisk bike ride around our neighborhood, fixed this and took it out to the patio to enjoy the Spring air.
And the Spring allergies.
It is basically my recipe for Simple Egg Salad with a few additions and you serve it as a dip or an appetizer. This recipe has been our simple favorite for years. I hope you enjoy it!
Take 12 hard boiled eggs (to see how to perfectly hard boil an egg see this post)
Slice them in half.
Toss half of them into the food processor.
Chop up the other half with a knife.
Into the food processor also add 1/2 cup of plain nonfat Greek yogurt and 1/2 cup of light mayonnaise.
Add in 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard, a teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper and a teaspoon of sugar.
Process this for 30 seconds to a minute to make it fairly smooth.
Scrape it into a mixing bowl and add in your chopped eggs.
Gently fold it all together.
Cut up one large avocado into chunks.
Scoop it out and add it into the dip.
Again, gently fold the avocado into the dip.
Optional: If you like onion flavor, stir in some chopped chives (a tablespoon or two). I loved the addition. I think green onions would be too much but the tiny flecks of chives were wonderful.
You can serve this with any bread product you like. Pita chips are good, or crackers…but I like to serve it with plain ol’ white bread to mimic an egg salad sandwich. Cut off the crusts and then cut each piece in fourths to make cute little squares.
You get one small bite of Deviled Egg Salad Dip perfection on each piece.
