Cauliflower “Potato” Salad

Pin It


This low carb salad will satisfy almost anyone’s desire for potato salad!

Cauliflower stands in for carb-heavy potatoes but all of the other ingredients are the same as a traditional potato salad.

My dressing might be lighter than others that you are used to but it has plenty of flavor to cover up any stray cauliflower taste!

You can make this salad up ahead of time just like a regular potato salad.

This is a beautiful salad when garnished with sliced hard boiled eggs, olives and parsley.

This is the traditional rendition of this salad but I already have ideas to take it lots of different directions.   It’s great because it is so healthy and good for you!

    Thanks for your comment Judee! I really don’t eat potatoes much any more so it’s so nice that cauliflower can stand in so easily for them!

    Andrea, I appreciate your subbing the cauliflower for the potatoes. It is such a healthy dish now. Thanks for linking it to My Meatless Mondays and stop by on Monday, to see who has been put in the spotlight. Hint hint…….

    Hi Amy! I am always thinking how I can use cauliflower in place of both potatoes and also pasta. I do this because I eat gluten free but also because I don’t want the carbs.

    I love how your substitute cauliflower in this “potato” salad, so much healthier! I’ve seen cauliflower mashed “potatoes” so this is perfect way to enjoy cauliflower during the summer.
