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!

Tasty! I just finished it and I'm betting it will taste better once it's really cold. I left out the sugar substitute - Thanks for posting.

I love cauliflower and this is pretty good if you are dieting :> I had left overs and made them into cauliflower pancakes which were different.

Pretty good! A little to sweet for our tastes, will probably omit the sweetener next time. I also used regular mustard instead of dry, and non-fat mayo. Tasted just like "real" potato salad! Thanks!

This recipe is good but we felt it was way too sweet. Great side dish for low carbers though. I will just use one package of sweetner next time, if that. Great idea!
