Creamy Fauxtato Salad
I wanted to find a keto-friendly way to still have my potato salad with the Christmas ham. Came out so good, hubby went back for seconds. Essentially, you can just replace the potatoes with steamed cauliflower in your favorite potato salad recipe. I took my mom's creamy potato salad and changed the potatoes for cauliflower.
- Serves: 12 persons
- 1head cauliflower, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 3stalks celery, sliced
- 1medium green bell pepper, chopped
- ⅓cup finely chopped onion, or more to taste
- 1¼ cups mayonnaise (such as Duke's®)
- 1tablespoon vinegar
- 1tablespoon mustard
- ½teaspoon salt
- ½teaspoon ground black pepper
- 6hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
Step 1Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and add water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower, cover, and steam until tender, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately rinse with cold water, then set aside to cool.
Step 2Combine celery, green pepper, and onion in a large bowl. Add mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper and thoroughly mix together. Add cauliflower and eggs; toss lightly until mixed.
Step 3Cover and chill for until flavors have melded, 6 to 24 hours.
