Cobb Egg Salad

Cobb Egg Salad is your new favorite way to eat eggs, starting now! It has all the goodness of a Cobb salad built into this yogurt-based egg salad.

There are two things in my house that I can barely keep stocked. Eggs and yogurt. We go through about three quarts of Greek yogurt in a week. And, I love that because it’s so good for you! Greek yogurt has twice the amount of protein as most regular yogurt. It’s made by straining yogurt to remove the whey. The result is thicker yogurt, less sugar, less carbs and more protein.

Eggs are the other thing we go through like crazy. I am talking 6-7 dozen per week. And now that we are in love with this Cobb Egg Salad, (which uses both ingredients) we just might be eating even more – if that’s humanly possible.

Let’s start with the dressing, it’s homemade, and you’ll probably never buy store-bought again (just sayin’). A few ingredients and two minutes is all you need.

The star of the show is Greek yogurt. This adds even more protein to your dish, and it lightens it up a bit. I actually sub Greek yogurt often for oils, mayonnaise, or creams.

Here are four ways to enjoy this egg salad are:

  1. With a spoon! Seriously, though, it’s delicious alone.
  2. On lettuce cups as I’ve shown in this post. This is a great low carb option!
  3. On a yummy hearty whole grain bread, toasted.
  4. Top English muffins with it and broil them for a few minutes. (swoon!)

This is a perfect recipe for your Easter table, Mother’s Day brunch, or truly, any time of the year.

    1. Hi Heather! We would recommend substituting the blue cheese with another strong-tasting cheese, such as feta or gorgonzola. Please let us know what you think if you make it!
