Description

Mayo can contain over 5 times as many calories as Greek yogurt, as well as significantly more fat and sodium. Greek yogurt also contains far more protein, so it’s an easy switch that has great health benefits! This version uses plenty of fresh herbs - parsley and dill - to add a great flavour.

Method

  1. Boil the eggs for around 9-10 minutes, to give a firm yolk.
  2. Rinse them in cold water, allow to cool completely, then peel.
  3. Add the peeled hard boiled eggs to a mixing bowl, and add the Benecol Greek Style yogurt, dijon mustard, chopped herbs, and a pinch of black pepper.
  4. Mix thoroughly, mashing the eggs to your desired consistency.
  5. Add a few slices of tomato to a large tortilla, as well as a few fresh spinach leaves. Top with 1/3 of the egg salad, and roll tightly.
  6. Repeat to give three egg salad wraps.

 

Remember: The cholesterol lowering beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 1.5g – 3.0g plant stanols per person. Per serving of 112.5g Greek Style plain yogurt provides 0.8g plant stanols.
