Southern Style Fauxtato Salad ~ Low Carb

My grandmother made the BEST potato salad!  After she was unable, my mom started making it and it was just like Grandma Butler’s.

Even though my mom didn’t eat anything “white, bland or mushy”, she would always make potato salad every holiday meal for my brother and me. I don’t know how she did it without even tasting, ’cause it was always perfect!

I’ve found out that substituting cooked cauliflower actually works and the results are very tasty.  It’s a simple recipe but makes a great side dish for a BBQ or even a holiday dinner!

Southern Style Fauxtato Salad

1 med head of cauliflower, steamed
4 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
½ small onion, diced
½ cup dill pickle relish
2/3 cup real mayonnaise
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
salt and pepper to taste
paprika

Use your favorite steaming method to cook the cauliflower or
to steam cauliflower, cut into florets and put in a large
saucepan. Add about an inch of water in the bottom,
cover and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat while leaving
lid on while the cauliflower steams, maybe about 7 minutes
or so. Drain and rinse under cold water.

Put in large bowl and cut florets into bite size pieces. Add
remaining ingredients and stir well. Sprinkle with paprika
and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

Serve with grilled meat or as a side for your holiday ham.

COOK’S NOTE: I have used a 12 oz bag of frozen cauliflower
with favorable results. Steam and cut into bite-sized pieces
before adding the remaining ingredients.

WW Au Gratin Potatoes

Last year at this time, I was trying the Weight Watcher diet.

As usual, I was off on a hunt for the best recipes.  Being a potato lover, this recipe immediately grabbed my attention.

It was very good!

My problem is…I just can’t eat sugar or starch without it showing up…so I eventually went back to low carb.

If you are one that can do WW’s successfully, then this is a great recipe to try.
