Cauliflower No-Potato Salad

By April 12, 2016

I really didn't believe a cauliflower "potato" salad could taste as good as the real thing. I'm not a huge white potato eater, but I do recall the creamy, tangy and bacon-y goodness from BBQs when I was a kid. There's something all-American and nostalgic about it, but with all the carbs and fat, it's just not the greatest choice. I decided to put a healthy spin on the classic summer salad, and to my great surprise, it was incredible. And not just, "yeah, I made it and it's delicious," incredible.  This is full-blown, kids won't stop eating it INCREDIBLE.  I dare you to try it, even if you're not a big cauliflower fan.  It doesn't taste like veggies! I am giving you the option to use whatever type of mayo you like.  My reason for creating this was because I wanted a Paleo salad.  To do that, I needed a mayo alternative.  My choice: 1 tablespoon of Primal Mayo (it's paleo-friendly) plus 1/2 cup of my cashew cream.  If you scroll back to my salad post a few posts back, you'll see how I made it. Hey- here's one more tip: try a new way of hard-boiling your eggs. Instead of doing them stove-top, and risk having them get kind of grey, place them straight on the grate in a 325 degree oven for 30 minutes. (Place a baking sheet underneath just in case one breaks). Remove to an ice bath and peel when they're cool enough to touch. They're perfect every time!
