Diet Egg Salad

Diet egg salad is living proof that eggs are not off limits to those of us watching our weight. In fact, I'd rather present it as a standard recipe because it is so tasty, but that would be denying dieters the opportunity to try it.

The use of curry powder in this egg salad recipe gives it an extra "zip" that will leave a long after-taste to remind you how nice this dish really is. The recipe uses diet mayonnaise, but that can be substituted if you prefer. You can also add chopped tomato and basil with extra virgin olive oil to give added color and flavor.
