Summer time means it is time for picnics. This egg salad recipe is a healthier variation on your typical egg-salad using cottage-cheese for moisture rather than mayonnaise. It is not quite as tangy as you may be used to, but the dill adds a fantastic flavor and the celery adds a nice crunch. Put this egg salad on some good quality whole-wheat bread, add a slice of watermelon, and you have yourself a well rounded picnic lunch.
