Recipes for Low Carb Living: Chunky Egg Salad

American Weight Loss SalmonEgg Salad is a high protein alternative to traditional leafy salads. It is not typically seen as a healthy dish because it's main ingredients are traditionally eggs and mayonaise, however we at our medical weight loss centers, have been able to come up with a different recipe that is actually more healthy than most. Without sacrificing taste and of course heaping amounts of protein.

  • Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, with a tight-fitting lid, place the eggs and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Cover the eggs, remove from the heat, and set aside for 8 minutes. Drain the water from the pan and cool the eggs in the pan under cold running water. Peel the eggs and cut into sixths.
