Classic Spinach Salad. You’re going to love this lightened-up Joy of Cooking classic recipe. Served hot or cold. Just be sure to use an egg slicer so the eggs are perfectly slices, then toss the eggs over the salad.

Egg Salad. Who can resist a homemade egg salad sandwich? Instead of paprika, I add a pinch of curry for a sweet-savory flavor. Serve it on whole wheat toasted bread with a thick slice of ripe, juicy tomato.

7 Layer Salad. I lightened up the Pioneer Woman’s recipe by trimming calories from the dressing and cutting back on some of the bacon. But you’ll notice, I kept her recommendation for one whole layer of chopped, hard cooked eggs.
