Keto Cauliflower Potato Salad
Summer is right around the corner and when I think of summer I think of picnicking with delicious keto sides! One of the things every southern summer cookout has as a staple is potato salad. It is a dish I have sorely missed!
When I was planning Easter dinner, the two things that came to mind were potato salad and ham.
I concocted this Keto Cauliflower “Potato” Salad at our Easter meal and I have to say it was so good I didn’t even miss the real thing! My husband even said this “Was my best side dish yet!” Play with the ingredients to suit your tastes. We are big mustard fans so we like a more mustardy keto potato salad. Just remember, you can always add more but you can’t take it away so add a bit at a time, taste test and keep going until you reach the desired yumminess.
1 large head of cauliflower
4-6 hard-boiled eggs chopped
8 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled
1 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
pink Himalayan salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste
4 tsp. yellow mustard
1/2 an onion diced
sliced green onion/chives
1/2 tsp. onion powder
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Toss in chopped cauliflower (remove most of the stem) for 5-7 minutes until just tender. Careful not to overcook or the cauliflower will turn to mush.
While the cauliflower is boiling, cook about a half pound of bacon in a large skillet until crispy. Drain and let cool, then crumble into pieces.
Drain the cauliflower and set aside to cool while prepping the other ingredients. Place in the fridge if needing to serve soon after.
Peel and dice 4-6 hard boiled eggs, depending on preference.
Shred 1 1/2 cups of cheddar cheese and set aside.
Dice 1/2 an onion and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl place cauliflower and all other ingredients in and stir well to combine.
This recipe is versatile so if you are not a big onion fan, mustard fan, etc. you can change the quantity to your suit your taste. Chill, serve, and enjoy!
