FAUX-TATO SALAD (CAULIFLOWER “POTATO” SALAD)
I love me some homemade potato salad. It’s one of the first things I heap on my plate whenever we are having some of my husband’s famous brisket and chicken wings. But in an effort to cut back on carbs, I decided to try a lower carb version made with cauliflower, the miracle vegetable. Everything else in this recipe is the exact same as what I would add in traditional potato salad except potato and guilt!
1 large head cauliflower
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
3 sticks of celery, diced
5 green onions, chopped including part of the green
1 large dill pickle, chopped
1 small jar pimentos
1/2 –2/3 cup paleo mayonnaise (depending on how creamy you like it)
*You can make your own or use Primal Kitchen Mayo
2 T. yellow mustard
1 t. celery seed
salt and pepper to taste
Cut cauliflower up into medium pieces and steam until al-dente but not completely falling apart. Let cool. Add chopped hard-boiled eggs, diced celery, chopped green onions, dill pickle, pimentos, mayonnaise, mustard, and celery seed. Mix to blend. Add salt and pepper to taste. Chill until ready to serve.
