Is there anyone out there who doesn`t like that classic bbq warm weather classic Potato Salad. It`s the perfect make ahead side dish for any potluck, casual gathering, picnic or get together. It`s just plain good. Well, today I`ve got something better & by better I mean like twice, no, at least three times better than the traditional version! All the same great flavors & ingredients but with one major substitution. Potatoes are swapped out for low carb, super healthy cauliflower. BTW, just a side note but one serving of cauliflower contains 77 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. It’s also a good source of vitamin K, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, magnesium, phosphorus, fiber, vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium, and manganese. Just saying! Now the best part, even if you`re a die hard potato lover you probably won`t even know the difference. While I love the original it tends to be really heavy. Look, I eat A LOT but can usually only really manage 3-4 bites before it starts weighing me down. This Delicious Low Carb Cauliflower ¨Potato¨ Salad is anything but. It`s lite but so completely satisfying & crazy good you`ll be going back for thirds, guaranteed! Again, not to ramble but this version is simply AMAZING! Once you make this the 1st time you may never go back!
