Deli salads are notoriously smothered in mayonnaise, high in sodium and loaded with calories. Egg salad gets a nutritious makeover in this delicious Healthy Egg Salad Sandwich recipe with light mayo, finely chopped veggies and whole grain bread. You can cut the fat and calories even more by replacing two of the whole hard cooked eggs with four hard cooked whites and/or making sandwiches open-faced.
