This low-carb mock potato picnic salad will be a hit at your next BBQ!

As you likely know, cauliflower is a super successful potato swap in many low-carb recipes. It has a versatile, mild flavor that blends beautifully with other recipe ingredients. With this in mind, I whipped up a batch of cauliflower “potato” salad for the perfect keto-friendly side dish. As expected, it was a hit!

According to Wikipedia, traditional potato salad is known to have originated in Germany and was later brought by German and European immigrants during the 19th century. This side dish is a staple at most summer cookouts and get-togethers, and has been typically non-keto friendly… until now! Our cauliflower swap will have you thinking you’re eating the real thing, it’s not only flavorful it’s oh so low carb.

Hip tips for making the best keto cauliflower “potato” salad:

    • Be sure to cook the cauliflower long enough that the texture resembles a cooked potato. For this particular recipe, we’re going more for soft-tender than crisp-tender.
    • Fun idea: Serve this keto no-potato salad as a one-bowl meal by adding 2 cups of chopped rotisserie chicken. YUM!
