First, a confession. I’ve never prepared egg salad before because I’m mayo-averse.

However, other “binders” can work just as well, and I used Greek yogurt. Mashed avocado would also work, and if you like mayo, by all means use that.

To give this egg salad extra flavor and an omega-3 boost, I added Vital Choice Sockeye Salmon Nova Lox, and the results were outstanding.

By combining eggs and smoked sockeye salmon, you get a full-flavor, high-protein lunch or snack that’s heart-healthy, colorful and quick to make.

Send me a note and let me know you made this simple dish your own!

My rating: 3½ out of 4 stars

A few notes for the cook
You’ll see that I didn’t include any salt or pepper in the preparation.

The combination of capers, nova lox, dill, and lemon zest made this incredibly flavorful without additional seasonings. But please season to taste.
