Trader Joe’s Spicy Ranchero Egg White Salad Knock-off Recipe
Eggs are inexpensive in my area. I picked up three dozen for 1.99. Great price huh?
I'm not baking much this summer but I do love fried eggs whites for breakfast and Gabe loves Snowteapots Egg Salad. I wanted to make a healthy salad and saw this recipe from
My Foray into food Storage and adapted it.
9 extra large hard boiled eggs
cilantro, to taste (I used 1/2 tsp. dried)
jalapeno pepper ( used 1 small red and 1 small green jalapeno)
1 large red bell pepper
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon pickle juice ( my grandmother would always add the juice from a pickle jar, add if desired)
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice ( or to taste)
Boil the eggs, then peel.
Cut eggs in half, remove yolks, then chop whites. Set yolks aside for another use.
In a small mixing bowl add chopped jalapeno, red bell pepper, and cilantro. Add egg whites. Stir gently to combine.
In a separate bowl, mix together lemon juice, pickle juice, Greek yogurt and spices.
Gently fold into the egg white mixture.
Chill for at least 2 hours, serve.
