Welcome to my Colorado kitchen!<br/><br/>This series features me, Michelle — a writer and soccer mom from the Rocky Mountains — my husband and two kids, some beautiful Vital Choice seafood, and lots of regular home cooking.<br/><br/>(Click here to learn more about me, below.)<br/><br/>I want to feature the products and preparations you’re curious about.<br/><br/>Have a suggestion? Question? Recipe you want me to test?<br/><br/>Email me and help to shape this series.<br/><br/>First, a confession. I’ve never prepared egg salad before because I’m mayo-averse.<br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>Send me a note and let me know you made this simple dish your own!<br/><br/>My rating: 3½ out of 4 stars<br/><br/>A few notes for the cook<br/>You’ll see that I didn’t include any salt or pepper in the preparation.<br/><br/>The combination of capers, nova lox, dill, and lemon zest made this incredibly flavorful without additional seasonings. But please season to taste.
