Instead of serving it on a bed of leafy salad greens, tonight my side-dish was mock potato salad using cauliflower as a stand-in for the potatoes. I know, I was suspicious too, but it really was good! Which is fortunate since I made a double batch! I've seen several versions of this online, but fortunately a lady named Mona has already Poonified it! Her recipe is below, and the only changes I made were leaving out the radishes and chopping a small dill pickle to stand in for the relish and dill. My husband thought the texture wasn't quite the same as potatoes, but it doesn't need to be ... The flavour is just right! Give it a try!
Mona's Fauxtato Salad (Phase 1 friendly)
1/2 large head cauliflower
2 green onions
2 stalks celery
2 hard boiled eggs
3 large tablespoons Hellman's lite olive oil mayo
1 tsp Mount Olive sweet relish
1/2 tsp dried dill (can use fresh if you have it)
Steam cauliflower until just tender crisp. Set aside and allow to cool. Cut into pieces. Chop onions, dice celery, and finely dice radish. Chop or mash the eggs with a fork. Add just enough of the mayo to meld everything together. Unlike potatoes, you will use much less mayo.
