I was craving egg salad recently, but not the ordinary variety. So I took my egg salad recipe and mixed in some of my favorite ingredients, including goat cheese and red beets.
The final recipe turned out delicious and creamy, if I do say so myself. Egg salad becomes dynamic and memorable all over again. Presentation is important, even if you’re eating alone, so make it look good. I made a colorful salad, placing a small amount of egg salad in the center and drizzling balsamic vinegar on top. The final dish is both beautiful and wonderfully tasty.
I will caution, this egg salad recipe is very rich. Just eat a small portion and add a salad of fresh vegetables for a wonderfully healthy meal. You can eat well and stay thin if you use portion control of rich foods. I recommend balancing your meals with more greens and fresh vegetables, less high caloric foods.
Exercise is also essential for staying fit and healthy. Find a physical activity that you enjoy and incorporate it into the fabric of your day. Then you’ll always want to make time for exercise and can enjoy treats like egg salad!
