Cauliflower Potato Salad

Cauliflower Potato Salad @rachmccarthy7

With Memorial Day weekend less than two weeks away, I have had grilling, BBQ and all those delicious summer sides on my mind. One of my all-time favorite side dishes to have with burgers and other grilled dinners is potato salad. My mom has been making this recipe for years and it is always something to look forward to in the warmer months. I wanted to try a healthier spin on this recipe so I substituted the potatoes for cauliflower for a just as delicious spin on the classic.

I'm always cooking with cauliflower. It is one of my favorite foods and makes for a great alternative to potatoes, pasta and even rice. {You can see a few of my other cauliflower recipes HERE} Of all the cauliflower substitute recipes I have made, I think this recipe is probably most like the original. The cauliflower mac and cheese was pretty good, it tasted pretty similar to the original, but you still felt like you were eating cauliflower. I think the secret here is that the cauliflower is soaked in the Italian dressing so the cauliflower becomes super flavorful. Of course, the sour cream and mayo also don't hurt with the flavor. You can use the low fat version of the sour cream, mayo and Italian dressing if you are looking for a super healthy alternative. Check out the recipe below!

Cauliflower Potato Salad
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1/3 cup Italian dressing
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1/3 cup green onions, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon horseradish
Place cauliflower in a saucepan and cover by 1 inch of water. Bring the water to a boil and simmer until the cauliflower is tender, about 15 minutes. Once cooked, pour the salad dressing over the warm cauliflower. Chill for 2 hours. Mix the remaining ingredients and fold into potato mixture. Serve and enjoy!


Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Tuesday!
