Grape Egg Salad

Grape Egg Salad1
This is simply a delightful, unique egg salad! Made with yogurt and red grapes, this egg salad is a bit sweet, incredibly flavorful, and healthy!  It uses yogurt as the binding ingredient instead of mayonnaise.

The yogurt here is high in nutrients and low in fat — all without losing any of the creamy richness I love in traditional egg salads.  It's making little changes like this that can help kids develop a taste for healthy alternatives (something smart to think about during September, Childhood Obesity Awareness Month).

Most kids love eggs, so it's not at all surprising that mine don't!  I can, however, entice them with this! (On occasion.) I love it so much that it's hard for me not to eat most of it with a spoon before it makes its way into a sandwich!
