1 cup / 250 g
Naturegg Simply Egg Whites, well shaken
2 tbsp / 30 ml
light mayonnaise
1 tbsp / 15 ml
lemon juice
2 tsp / 10 ml
Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp / 2 ml
finely grated lemon zest
small, ripe avocado, finely chopped
2 tbsp / 30 ml
chopped fresh dill (approx.)
thin slices, pumpernickel bread, toasted
radishes, very thinly sliced
3/4 cup / 175 ml
very thinly sliced cucumber
1/2 cup / 125 ml
alfalfa sprouts (optional)
Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Lightly coat a glass pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. Pour in the egg whites and microwave, on High, for 4 to 5 minutes or until egg whites are set. Cool completely and chop finely.

  2. Toss the chopped egg whites with the mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard and lemon zest. Stir in the avocado and dill. Chill for at least 30 minutes or store, in an airtight container, for up to 1 day.

  3. Spread an even layer of the egg salad onto each piece of toasted bread. Garnish with radish, cucumber and sprouts (if using). Season with pepper to taste.


  1. For a zesty flavour addition, spread 1 tbsp (15 mL) light, chive-flavoured whipped cream cheese on each slice of pumpernickel before topping with the egg salad mixture.

  2. We recommend eating this meal with a knife and fork.
