I made this for lunch and wasn’t planning on sharing, but it was too good not to. I found the recipe from Damn Delicious (Thanks Chung-Ah for the recipe!). I made a few minor changes that I’m sure aren’t necessary, I always just like to add a little of this and that so I couldn’t resist. The agave is simply because mayonnaise contains sugar so since the mayo is greatly reduced in this recipe from the norm, I decided to add in a little sweetness to give it a similar very lightly sweet flavor. I also removed some of the egg yolks to make it a bit lighter. I’m telling you this is delicious and it’s so much healthier then its mayo coated competitor. Egg salad is a perfect lunch option but with all the calories it normally comes with I hardly ever make it. Now that I’ve found this lighter version I’ll be making it all the time! This coating would also be delicious over a potato salad. If you like egg salad then you’re going to want to try this recipe. Enjoy!
