Light and fluffy, minus the mayonnaise in traditional egg salad, this spread makes a scrumptious sandwich filler or protein-packed cracker topping. The creamy texture comes from nutritious Greek yogurt, and avocado adds healthy fat to the mix. Stir in some spinach for even greater nutrition–it supplies hard-to-obtain vitamin K!
