GREEK-STYLE EGG SALAD

I love egg salad – any shape and form!  My favorite way is simply with mayo, salt, pepper, and a little splenda (YES…just a pinch…brings out the flavors!)

So, it’s hard for me to change when I like the status quo.  But this one sounded so good and since I no longer eat it on bread, looked like a stand alone regular “salad”…that you eat with a fork!

And it is great.  The saltiness of the Feta and Greek olives is wonderful…the sweet tomatoes, wonderful.  Roll it up in a butter lettuce leaf and eat to your heart’s content.

    I’ve never heard of this Whey Low stuff you’re using in your recipes. I looked it up and it actually sounds pretty good. Can you tell me, does it taste like sugar? I want to go to Whole Foods and buy some, but am worried I’ll be wasting my money and not want to use it.

      It really does taste like sugar. The brown is amazing – even packs like brown sugar. I love a teaspoon or so over oatmeal or stirred into greek-style yogurt.
      I don’t care for the Diabetic whey low – not very sweet and it didn’t make GREAT baked goods – they were alright, but not great.
      I love the powdered – works an acts exactly like the real deal.
      And the best part is that they don’t have aftertastes like you get when you cook with some of the other sugar subs.
