Golden Egg Salad in Pictures

Let’s dive in. Golden Egg Salad.

I love egg salad. It’s creamy, a bit tangy, nourishing and full of flavor and satisfaction. 

Here’s how I made Golden Egg Salad the other night. 

I started by pressure cooking organic broccoli in my beloved Instant Pot, which effortlessly takes only a handful of minutes. 

Instant Pot broccoli. Easy!

While the broccoli is cooking, I get a bowl together with the dressing mixture.

For starters, I don’t like conventional mayo because they all have some kind of vegetable oil in it (canola or sunflower or soybean oil) of which I currently eschew. I’m not crazy about the primal mayos out there either. 

Instead, I love and always use Straus whole-fat Greek yogurt which is a kiss from heaven. It’s thick, rich, and tastes like cream cheese(?) to me. I use it in place of all things mayo and my gut thanks me as a result (boost of gut-health probiotic love). I can’t speak for other Greek yogurts though, as far as heavenly taste. 

To the bowl, I add:

I stir it all and look for more stuff to add texture and pizzazz to my egg salad. 

Oh. Whoops. I should mention that I already had my hard-cooked eggs made in my Instant Pot earlier today. Reason alone to buy an Instant Pot to make the perfect-every-time hard-boiled eggs

Ok so I found some red bell pepper and chopped it. 

I added sauerkraut and chopped bread-n-butter pickles (my favorite in egg salad).

Bell pepper for texture, brightness, and nutrition

Then I chopped the freshly cooked broccoli, added more Greek yogurt cuz you should make it really creamy. 

I need a bigger bowl.

Added the chopped eggs. 

Stirred it up and tasted. 

Almost perfect. 

Diced up an apple and added it. 

Now, it’s perfect. 

Oh yeah. Bring it.

Mmmmmmmm.
