You won't miss the mayo in this protein packed Cottage Cheese Egg Salad recipe.
Over the years I've had a love/hate relationship with cottage cheese.
First, I hated it.
Now, I love it.
I'm fairly simple that way.
Egg salad on the other hand? It will forever own my heart.
I recently discovered (out of necessity, more than anything else, when I realized I was running low on eggs) that you could mix these two protein powerhouses to create a satisfyingly tasty batch of egg salad. Stuffed between two pieces of hearty whole-grain bread, this egg salad makes the kind of lunch I could eat day after day.
I prefer my egg salad as I do my deviled eggs -- with a bit of dill and touch of mustard. The day I made this I also sprinkled on a few fresh chives, and quickly decided my brilliance knows no bounds (Okay, well, maybe that's a stretch, but chives + egg salad is sandwich perfection. Trust me.)
Give this quick and easy recipe a try the next time you're looking for a filling lunch option!

- 1 teaspoon golden mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
