No Potato Salad

This healthier gluten free potato salad is perfect for picnics and barbecues.  Replacing potato with cauliflower is a trick that I learned from the “low-carbers.”  And it is a good one!

In the winter, I often make mashed cauliflower in place of mashed potatoes.  Now, in spring, it is wonderful to have this no potato salad made from cauliflower.  We’ll be having it tonight with grilled turkey burgers and green salad from our garden.

  1. Hello Elena,

    I haven’t tried this salad but I will this weekend. How long will it keep in the fridge?

  2. This was divine, Elana! Every single member of our family, including in-laws, loved it. My husband, who prefers his cauliflower raw (ick) had several helpings, the three year old was enthused because of the egg salad flavor, and the seven year old wanted multiple helpings. We practically licked the plate. Love it, especially since I’m eating low-carb this year. Thank you! I did simplify with no onion (pregnancy heartburn), no parsley, and no celery (hate the stuff). I meant to dice green pepper instead for the crispy green crunch but forgot. Lovely recipe! I used Sir Kensington mayonnaise since we love the flavor and are not strictly paleo. Yum yum.

  3. The B-O-M-B. This recipe has everything. Easy, delicious, comfort-food quality, 100% healthy. Our newest household staple. Thank you SO much.

    Deep bow,

    Janell

  4. I made this last night but used a few favorite ingredients from my potato salad (like a bit of dill pickle brine), and it was just amazing! I was expecting my husband to be not so enthusiastic, but he does like cauliflower and he loved it! Thanks for the great recipe!
