Remember all of those family reunions, picnics, and pot-luck outdoor gatherings of friends and family? It is hard to imagine those without someone bringing the potato salad. Now, it is Cauliflower Potato Salad! It is a delicious side dish!

The key ingredient is Cauliflower. Joanie stresses that florets are needed. We use cauliflower a lot of our low-carb kitchen. It is found in so many recipes. Cauliflower is healthy, easy to work with, and is the perfect substitute for potatoes. It is hard to tell the difference between Keto Cauliflower Potato Salad and the original. Joanie’s dressing is the same as she has always used to make potato salad.

Joanie uses diced red onion for the salad. It adds more kick than yellow or white onions. Plus, it adds that distinct color. Also, celery and chopped eggs are a must to replicate the traditional potato salad crunch and flavor. Joanie even uses celery seeds in her dressing. It adds so much. You can use Dijon Mustard. However, we prefer the deep flavor and color of stone ground mustard. Paprika is the traditional topping for potato salads. Joanie also like to add some fresh dill as a garnish for her Keto Cauliflower Potato Salad.

Preparation Tips

The preparation process is basically the same as that for traditional potato salad recipes. First, cut a head of fresh cauliflower into florets. Boil the florets for 5 minutes in water, drain, and pat dry. They need to be thoroughly dry. Cut the larger cooked cauliflower florets into bit-sized chunks (just like potatoes). Finally, add the red onions, celery, and eggs to the cooked cauliflower florets. You will need a large bowl.

The dressing is where the flavor comes from. It is likely the items are easily found in your pantry. Joanie uses a smaller bowl to first blend the dressing ingredients. She likes Primal Kitchen’s Avocado Oil Mayonnaise. But, you can certainly use any Real Mayonnaise. “Gently fold” the mixed dressing into the Cauliflower ingredients. Then allow the flavors to meld in the refrigerator. Keto Cauliflower Potato Salad should be topped with paprika and dill. It should be served cold.
