Goat Cheese Egg Salad with Red Beets

5 years ago

I was in the mood for egg salad one day but not an ordinary egg salad so I just started mixing some of my favorite ingredients. If I do say so, this turned out delicious. I will caution that this egg salad is very rich, so just eat a smaller portion with a wonderful salad of fresh vegetables.

My philosophy has always been that you can eat well staying thin and fit if you use portion control of rich foods. I like to balance my meals with more greens and fresh vegetables less high caloric foods. If I make and eat a rich dish I watch my portion. Also, exercise is essential for staying fit and healthy. Find a physical activity that you enjoy to incorporate into the fabric of your day then you will always have time for exercise!

Back to food I do believe that presentation is so important even if you are eating alone, make it look good! I made a colorful salad placing a small amount of egg salad in the center, drizzled some balsamic vinegar for a beautiful and wonderfully tasting dish. Did I mention so easy, too!

Goat Cheese Egg Salad with Red Beets

4 eggs, hard boiled, peeled and chopped

1/4 cup reduced fat mayonnaise with olive oil

1/4 cup goat cheese, crumbled

1 tablespoon scallions, minced, just the white part

1/4 cup celery, finely chopped

1/4 cup red beets, chopped

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

 

In a medium bowl, mix eggs and mayonnaise. Add goat cheese, mixing until combined. Add remaining ingredients. Makes 4 small servings

Enjoy!
