Revisiting Egg Salad

I am proud to admit that I have formed the healthy habit of packing my lunch for work. I began experimenting with delicious recipes last summer that I could bring to work and not have lunch envy of my co-workers who tend to buy theirs.  Last year, I realized the amazing substitution secret of Greek yogurt for mayonnaise, and I’ve stuck to that substitution ever since. I used it in egg salad last year, and tried out a different recipe this year, which I know I’ll make again and again (it’s so addicting).

I also discovered the power of endive leaves- the perfect dipping utensil with a slightly bitter bite and crisp crunch. No need for chips! So the next time you’re in the mood for something creamy, spicy, crunchy and all-around satisfying to bring to lunch, try my Curry Egg Salad with Endive.
