Cauliflower Salad (Low Carb Potato Salad Substitute)


Summer is almost over, but I had to sneak in a bbq/picnic salad to share with you today.  Since I am eating low carb, potato salad has been taken off the list for me.  So I had to come up with a potato salad substitute.  I use mashed cauliflower as a mash potato substitute so why not try it out for potato salad.  It worked out great.  Cauliflower has found a real place in my heart these days... so you will definitely see more dishes coming your way.

1 head cauliflower chopped and steamed until tender
1/3 cup of finely diced celery
1/3 of finely diced red onion
4-5 slices of bacon diced, fried and crumbled
1-2 stalks of scallions finely sliced
1 pepper diced (bell, jalapeno, serrano- your choice)
1/2 cup of light mayonnaise (or more to taste)
1 Tbs of Dijon Mustard
1/4 tsp of celery seed
1 tsp of red or white vinegar
1 tsp of white sugar (or splenda)
Salt and Black Pepper to taste
4 hard boiled chopped

Cut and steam cauliflower until tender (but not mushy.  You want the cauliflower to still stay in shape, but be tender like a potato in potato salad.  Then allow cauliflower to cool.  Add with all other ingredients.  Adjust seasoning to taste. Top with more bacon crumbles before serving.  Serve chilled. Enjoy.
