    This serves as a great base recipe for "unpotato" salad. I tend to like it better than actual potato salad, frankly. For myself, I made some modifications for my preferences. I like my vegetables finely chopped in potato salad, so I used 1-1/2 cups chopped celery, and just under one cup of chopped white onion. I was short on mayonnaise, using 1-1/2 cups mayonnaise, 1/2 cup sour cream instead. That worked out very well. I don't like Splenda, so I used a pinch of granulated sugar. Lastly, I added fresh parsley and dill to my taste - that took it to the next level for me. The fresh herbs really wake up all the flavors in this potato salad, and make all the difference. Overall, a great recipe! There is lots of opportunity for creativity, and I look forward to experimenting with the recipe again and again.

    I really enjoyed this recipe, I have to admit however; I modified it quite a bit due to our personal preferences. Instead of adding splenda and vinegar, I added 1 1/2 Tbsp of mustard and about 1/8th of a cup to 1/4 cup of pickle juice to the mayonaise mixture. I also added pickles to the salad as well. I found that 8 minutes steamed the cauliflower just right, not mushy, still slightly crunchy. I will definately be making this dish again. I've missed potato salad, glad to finally find a recipe that is comparable. thanks for sharing!
