Buttery mashed potatoes and gravy; rich, cheesy casseroles; creamy pumpkin pies … there's no shortage of indulgences come the holidays, and we haven't even entered Christmas cookie season yet. While these decadent dishes are called for at this time of year, it's no surprise that you may be craving a bit of balance in your meals. That's where this healthy recipe comes in.

Ready to eat in only 25 quick minutes, Food Network Kitchen's Garden Egg Salad is a better-for-you take on traditionally heavy egg salad. By swapping in low-fat mayonnaise and mixing in fresh celery and crunchy radishes, this mustard-laced salad features all of the textures and flavors you crave, but it's not simply made lighter. Bonus: Opt for romaine lettuce leaves instead of the traditional bread when serving up this fuss-free lunch.
