  • 10 hard boiled eggs
  • 1/2 cup dill pickles diced
  • 1/3 cup yellow onion finely diced
  • 2/3 cup light sour cream*
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar or pickle juice
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill optional


  • Boil, cool and peel eggs. Slice each egg in half (Egg slicers are all the rage. This is a great one and makes life SO easy). Discard the yolks from eight of the eggs or save for later.
  • Chop eggs into small pieces and place into a large bowl. Add in the remaining chopped ingredients and stir to combine.


*Light sour cream is a nice in-between 'sauce' between real mayonnaise and plain Greek yogurt. It has minimal-ish calories.
**I didn't have any celery on hand when I made this recipe. Feel free to add it in too! I also really like adding in mild pepperoncini too. I love a good vinegary bite.
