Trader Joes's Egg White Salad

Since August is National Sandwich Month, we've been featuring a sandwich almost daily here at Iateapie.net. But, that's not all we eat! I was in Trader Joe's the other day, scanning the pre-made foods section (I never realized what a great selection they have), when a range of egg white salads caught my eye. The Egg White Salad with Chives in particular caught my eye as it looked both appealing and ... strange (the yellow color was a bit off-putting). Regardless, I decided pony up the $2.69 to see what this would taste like.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 3 ounces (1/2 the container)
Calories: 50
Total Fat: 2 grams, 3%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 300 mg, 12%
Carbohydrates: 2 grams
Fiber: 0%
Sugar: 0 grams
Protein: 7 grams

I looked at the nutritional information first and was impressed, to say the least. For half of the 6 ounce container of Trader Joe's Egg White Salad with Chives, there are 50 calories, 2 grams of total fat (no saturated or trans fats), 26% of the daily value for sodium, and 7 grams of protein.

My eyes next went to the ingredients list, and I saw the following: egg whites, celery, canola oil, water, cider vinegar, brown rice syrup, soy protein, sea salt, xanthan gum, lemon juice, ground mustard, granulated garlic, granulated onion, dried chives, white pepper, citric acid, and tumeric. I love that the first ingredient is egg whites and that most of the ingredients are quite natural; I'd expect nothing less from Trader Joe's!

Going through all that information really built up good expectations of what the taste was going to be like - and I wasn't disappointed. It was pure deliciousness! This reminded me so much of pasta salads I had in my childhood, except it was much healthier, with egg whites replacing the pasta salad. Let's face it, pasta is often a vehicle for sauce, and this is a great combination that tastes sort of like mayo-based egg salad with a tiny kick of spice.

love thisYum! Let's just say the container was gone too quickly! I highly recommend you try Trader Joe's Egg White Salad with Chives; I plan on trying the other flavors ASAP.
