Kale Pesto Egg Salad

About the recipe: "The “harshness" of the kale actually became a huge advantage in the pesto, letting the flavors of the kale really shine through without overwhelming the bite or palate. I added just enough of this pesto magic in a Greek yogurt egg salad mixture, giving it just enough green for that fun, herbaceous spring twist on a classic egg salad sandwich.  This pesto egg salad has become one of my favorite egg salad recipes yet, and it will be in constant rotation at our house.
