Sriracha Egg Salad
- 3 hard-boiled eggs
- 2-1/2 to 3 tablespoons non-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 1 to 2 teaspoons sriracha sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- salt and pepper
- 1 green onion, thinly sliced
- 1 large celery stalk, finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons finely chopped parsley
- 1 large kale leaf, (washed, dried completely and torn into pieces)
- 2 sprays of olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 4 slices whole grain bread
- Prepare the egg salad by using a fork to mash the eggs, yogurt and sriracha sauce together to desired chunky texture. Stir in vinegar and add more yogurt if mixture is too dry. Season with salt and pepper to taste then stir in green onion, celery and parsley. Refrigerate until ready to eat.
- Prepare kale chips by preheating your toaster oven to 300 F. Place kale on a cookie sheet and spray with oil. Rub pieces around cookie sheet to coat the bottoms with oil. Sprinkle with garlic salt and arrange pieces so they are not touching.
- Bake kale for 6 minutes. Rotate pieces from back to front and bake an additional 3 to 5 minutes until crisp and dry. Allow kale chips to cool completely on the cookie sheet.
- To assemble sandwich toast bread slices and cool. Divide egg salad into four portions and spread onto cooled toasts. Layer kale chips onto two of the toasts, top with remaining slices and serve immediately.
Egg salad can be stored refrigerated for 3 to 4 days.
Keep kale chips crisp by storing in a brown paper bag or sealed container with 1 tablespoon of uncooked rice.

We had those same worries too. So Tim took the recipe for a “real world” test drive.
How to Make Your Sandwich at the Office
The night before, we spent about 20 minutes (during commercial breaks) making the egg salad and kale chips.
Uncertain of how to keep the kale chips fresh we packed them two ways. One handful in a brown paper bag. One handful in a plastic sandwich bag with uncooked rice.
Two days in a row Tim made the sandwich at work and took notes for you:
- Total Assembly Time = 10 minutes
- If you have access to a toaster, toast the bread at work and let it cool before topping
- Both days there was liquid at the bottom of the egg salad container (my note: it’s whey from the yogurt, you can just drain it off)
- Kale Chips Day 1: Each bag was crispy and flaky
- Kale Chips Day 2: Awesome Sauce! Both chips were still crispy, flaky and delicious
- Final Verdict: More effort than a PB&J but absolutely worth it
