I had heard about cauliflower being used as a substitute for potatoes , but had never tried it. I came across it on the low carb cooking, was liked by all.

I originally borrowed this recipe from my Daughter-In- Law years ago when she was on an Atkins Diet. I was so pleased to see it here! My mom is now a Type II diabetic. She has to count Carbs and is only allowed so many carbs per day.

1 serving of this salad is around 1 carb. which is much better than "Real Potato Salad".

I just wanted to say that whatever you add to your potato salad, can be added to this recipe. I have added Hard Boiled Eggs, chopped Dill Pickles, whatever you like!

I just made this recipe, but I doubled it. I used 2 heads of cauliflower. I added 1 red onion, 1/2 bell pepper, and some flat leaf parsely. If I had added pickles, I might have used some chopped fresh dill .

What is fun about Potato salad, and "Faux Potato Salad" is that you can add whatever is in the refrigerator, and needs to be used! It can be a bit different each time you make it! Thank You for posting this recipe! I lost mine over the years, and I think Mom will like this. She usually eats boiled mushy Cauliflower with Heart Smart margerine........... ugh!
