3 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt 3 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 1/8 teaspoon salt 8 hard-boiled eggs (see Tip) 1/2 cup finely chopped carrot 1/2 cup chopped cucumber, peeled and seeded if desired 1/4 cup sliced scallions
1. Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, pepper and salt in a medium bowl.
2. Halve eggs and discard 4 of the yolks (or save for another use). Add whites and the remaining 4 yolks to the bowl and mash to desired consistency. Gently stir in carrot, cucumber and scallions.
Tips & Notes Tip: To hard-boil eggs, place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and cover the eggs with ice-cold water. Let stand until cool enough to handle before peeling.
