This is a delicious recipe to add to your menu even if you're not on a low-carb diet! I will admit I was serving only 2 people so I made only half the "sauce" and used only 2 eggs but I did use more than half my cauliflower. (What's the standard size of a cauliflower anyway?) I used the "taste as you go" policy. Definitely a keeper and a recipe I will make again and again. Read More

Good starter recipe and an excellent use of cauli rather than taters. I steam the cauliflower and then shock in cold water so it doesn't get mushy. I also prefer a bit more spice in my salad. You can also sub in Greek yogurt for 1/2 or all of the mayo for an even healthier take! Read More

It is an excellent cauliflower salad. I steamed my cauliflower and then shocked it in cold water as another reviewer did so the cauliflower doesn't become mushy. 4 eggs is too many for one head of cauliflower unless you happen to find one of gargantuan size. I found 3 to be sufficient. The dill relish really makes this, I can't stand sweet pickles or sweet relish, and the dill relish gives it the kick it needs along with the mustard. I had made this quite some time ago after seeing the recipe posted on Facebook. I'm glad to see it here, to be able to review a very good recipe. Read More

This was just amazing really. I love raw cauliflower, but not a huge fan of cooked. However, I tried it, since I had a head, and then, after seeing the recipe, a "craving" for potatoe salad. It was pretty darned good, took care of the "gotta have its", and I felt I could indulge with another small serving since it was low carb. Remember to make ahead & chill for several hours before serving, so the favors meld. I used bread & butter pickles tho, since I like "sweet", they were all I had in the pantry AND, we're snowed in. HTH!!! Blessings!! Read More

Too much egg for my taste. Made it 2nd time with 1/2 the eggs and loved it! 3rd time I added diced celery and onion instead of green onions and loved it even more. Hubby enjoyed it too! Read More

I LOVE this fauxtato salad! Not only is it lower in carbs it is also EASIER and FASTER to make than potato salad! Cauliflower cooks and cools so much faster than potatoes and you'll never ever miss the taters. I've been making this once a week! Hubby loves it too! Tastes better the next day! Read More

Really loved this with little changes. I didn't have relish so I used chopped green pepper...little less mustard.....and red onion. Was wonderful!! 5 minutes for cauliflower was perfect. Put in frig then in freezer for few minutes. Next time I could shock it in cold ice water. But it worked perfectly. Read More

Great recipe the taste was similar to deviled eggs. The four eggs did make it a lot more yellow than expected though. Took a bit longer to steam until tender and extra mush might actually handy for texture. Great recipe for Atkins low-carb dieting or anyone! Read More
