12 large eggs

Ice

½ cup low-fat cottage cheese

3 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

2 teaspoons cider vinegar

1 tablespoon prepared horseradish

1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish

Salt and ground black pepper, to taste

Fresh chives, to garnish

Smoked paprika, to garnish

Place the eggs in a large saucepan and fill with cool water. Cover the pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove the pan from the heat and let sit for 15 minutes. Drain the hot water, leaving the eggs in the pan. Fill the pan with cold water and a cup of ice. Allow the eggs to cool completely.

Meanwhile, in a food processor combine the cottage cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar and horseradish. Purée until smooth. Set aside.

Peel the eggs but keep them intact. Slice the eggs in half lengthwise. Retain the egg whites. Discard half of the yolks.

In a medium bowl, mash the remaining yolks. Add the pureed dressing mixture and the relish. Stir to combine, then season with salt and black pepper. Using a pastry bag or a zip-close bag with the corner cut off, or using a spoon, refill the wells in the egg whites. Garnish the tops with a little sprinkle of smoked paprika and some chopped chives.

Makes 24.
