To lighten up this egg salad, yolks from two of the eight eggs are removed. A touch of lemon rind and sour cream add a zesty edge. Courtesy of Cooking Light. (Recipe includes time to hard-boil eggs.)

- 3 tablespoons green onions, thinly sliced
- 3 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream

- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon lemon rind, grated
- 8 large eggs, hard-boiled

We had these for breakfast. It was a nice little treat! Ok, so no tomato on mine, but I just can't eat them. I liked the addition of sour cream to the egg salad. It added a little extra to the flavor. I liked the green onions too. I only used about 2 tablespoons. Also I used all eight eggs, yolks and all. Thanks for a great breakfast!
This was a yummy lunch!! I love blts and love egg salad, too, but had never thought of putting the two together. I used a low fat tortilla instead of bread and turkey bacon to cut down a little more on fat. :) Thanks, rickoholic83! :)
I made these because DH and I were craving egg salad, and they were FANTASTIC! Thanks for posting!!
