"This recipe is based on my mom's wonderful potato salad. I made it because I was missing potato salad and I figured that substituting cauliflower would work pretty well... and it does! Without the potato it's perfect for folks who are diabetic or working on lower carb menus, but even those who aren't watching carbs enjoy it. Very tasty!

"Tastes just like potato salad without the carbs! Instead of fresh onion, I steamed dried minced onion flakes with the cauliflower to soften their texture. Because my mom always whips the potatoes for her potato salad, I pureed the cauliflower and then stirred in the chopped additions. It's impossible to tell that the creamy smooth cauliflower is not potatoes. I used sweet pickle relish instead of dill pickles and yellow mustard instead of Dijon for personal preference. Also, I added 1 stalk of celery and half a green bell pepper to amp up the freshness factor. Because my cauliflower was naturally moist, I only needed to add 5 tablespoons of low fat mayonnaise to make perfectly Creamy Cauliflower Salad. Thank you, Julesong, for a dream come true...a delicious low-carb "potato" salad!"
"I really enjoyed this. I used the fresh onion, curry powder, and celery (1 stalk). Next time the only thing I would change would be to add another stalk of celery. I liked steaming the cauliflower because it seemed not to add too much moisture to the salad. I, of course, didn't bother to garnish. I will definitely make this again since everyone ate it."
"This is a delicious salad. I love how different it is while still using familiar ingredients. I skipped the celery and curry powder, and mixed in the paprika and dill rather than just using them for garnish. This has a great taste. I will definitely be using this recipe again. Thanks!"
"I was pleasantly suprised by recipe. I scaled down the amounts because I didn't want to waste ingredients (just in case I didn't like it). After it got cold it really does taste a lot like potato salad! I pretty much eye-balled the ingredients because I only used about 3 cups of cauliflower florets ( my florets were a lot smaller than shown in the picture by Parsley). But I did use extra dijon mustard and could not bring myself to use all that mayonnaise so I made the dressing out of 1/3 cup of low fat cottage cheese pureed with 2 Tablespoons nayonaise. For me it's a better way to keep to my diet. I used extra dill weed in the salad and also used dried onion flakes, curry powder and dill pickle relish. Another great and different tasting way to use cauliflower. Thanks for posting this winner in my book Julesong."
"Very good. I used the fresh onion and added the optional chopped celery. I also used the optional curry powder (a mild curry powder). Even people who are not "low-carbing" can anjoy this. Thanx for posting."
"This is tasty. I used fat free mayo and a little more curry powder because I love it. I also left the onion chunks fairly large because, again, that is how I like it. I had some for lunch and am looking forward to having more later this week. I agree that trying to eat this warm is not for me. But once it got cold the flavors mellowed a little and I felt like they could use a little punch. I'll experiment for next time. Nice to make ahead and eat from during the week!"
