A while back I posted about my addiction to Trader Joe’s egg white salads. I’ve been meaning to try and deconstruct the recipe for a while now…. But maybe I don’t have to now!
Just found a similar recipe at the Hungry Girl website. Just ad a bit of red pepper for some kick, and I bet it would be very similar to the spicy ranchero flavor from Trader Joe’s.
I’m heading to the store this afternoon, and I’ll pick up the ingredients. I’ll let you all know what the verdict is.
Check out Hungry Girl’s recipe after the jump.
