Found this recipe while browsing the sunmaidraisin.com website;- with a little bit of fine tuning. Whole milk plain yogurt replaces some of the mayonnaise. Skip the coconut if you don't like it. It's good either way.

This was DEEE-licious! I cut the recipe down to 1 serving - I made it for my breakfast - and was very pleasantly surprised. I was a bit skeptical of the ingredient list as I am not very adventurous when it comes to cooking, and for me this was an adventurous recipe! With that said, I followed the recipe exactly as written and had a wonderful breakfast. The egg salad itself has a bit of bite and some sweetness from the coconut. I used Fage plain greek yogurt and organic mayo, so that made it nice and creamy. Loved the chopped roasted cashews too - crunch factor is a plus for me. I served open-face on gluten-free raisin bread and that really worked for me - the sweetness of the bread was a perfect compliment for the egg salad. BTW - I skipped the spinach as I didn't have any on hand, but did not miss it to be honest. Excellent recipe Cookgirl - thanks for posting. Made for ZWT8 and the Herbaceous Curvaceous Honeys!
