It’s funny how sometimes when you are on a diet you put up your own self imposed blinders about food. For me, once I started the Dukan Diet, it felt like any type of creamy salad was out automatically so I never gave them a second chance. But I was missing out – switch the mayo for Greek yogurt and serve up in lettuce wraps or with a spoon, and it’s a perfect meal. I like my egg salad a little spciy so I add whole grain mustard and some chili flakes.
