What to do with all of those decorated eggs? Egg salad of course…and I am not talking about just mayo and mustard. This recipe is filled with spices, chopped basil, yogurt bleu cheese dressing and more.
My kids love to decorate eggs…but absolutely no one in the house likes to eat hard boiled eggs. Don’t get me wrong, they will eat them but for some reason there is always something “better” they would prefer.
I myself am not much of a fan of the typical egg salad and am certainly not a fan of yellow mustard, but this sandwich blew my “brunch” taste buds away. Paprika and basil are definitely a match and instead of dumping a bunch of mayo in we supplemented with low-fat yogurt bleu cheese dressing.
Of course Tanner loved it…who wouldn't love a sandwich like this delivered to their mouth on a lazy day at home? He did however say, “This would be perfect with some bacon on it.” Yes. I agree. Everything could be improved with bacon. Well maybe not everything over time?!?!
1 dozen hard-boiled eggs, peeled and roughly chopped
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped

2 tablespoons low-fat bleu cheese dressing
