a serving bowl of low-carb mock potato salad

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. As expected, it was a hit!

Hip Tips:

  • 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!
  • Dress it up with crumbled bacon OR heat it up by swapping pickled jalapenos for the chopped dill pickles.
