Maybe we're biased, but we always make a bee-line for the eggy side dishes at BBQs, potlucks, and parties. This cauliflower-filled alternative to potato salad is a great keto option, and features all the creaminess and rich flavor of picnic food and corner deli dishes, but with a fraction of the carbs.

By: All Day I Dream About Food

Ingredients

  • 3 Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs
  • 1 head cauliflower, cored and cut into bite-sized pieces (see notes)
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 6 slices cooked bacon, chopped
  • 2 green onions, white and light green parts only, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Parsley for garnish (optional)

Directions

Step 1

In a large pot over medium high heat, bring 2 quarts of water to a boil. Gently lower eggs into water and boil for 12 minutes.

Step 2

While eggs are cooking, fill a medium bowl with ice and water. Once eggs are done, quickly transfer to the ice bath. Let eggs sit 10 minutes before peeling. Once peeled, roughly chop 2 of the eggs and slice the third.

Step 3

Place cauliflower pieces in another large pot and fill pot halfway with water. Bring to a boil and cook until cauliflower is just fork tender, about 3 minutes. Drain in a colander and let cool.

Step 4

In a large bowl, combine chopped eggs, cauliflower, celery, bacon, green onions, mayonnaise, Dijon, and paprika. Stir until well combined and the cauliflower is fully coated. Taste for seasoning and adjust with salt and pepper if desired.

Step 5

Transfer cauliflower salad to a serving bowl and top with the sliced egg and a pinch of paprika. Garnish with parsley if desired, and serve immediately or cover and chill in refrigerator.

Notes:

Be sure to cut the cauliflower even smaller than florets. This gives the salad the perfect texture and consistency.

Cauliflower cooks much faster than potatoes, so you want a light touch here. Don’t even leave the kitchen, because it will be done in a flash! Your cauliflower pieces should be just fork tender, because they'll keep cooking a bit once off the stove.

I loved this salad. I might call it Bacon Cauliflower salad! I did a few minor tweaks as follows. I chopped all 3 eggs and mixed them in. Also I didn't have green onions so I put about 1/8 cup finely chopped yellow onion (I'm not a huge fan of onion). I only used 1/3 cup of mayo. My mayo is kind of strong tasting. (Avocado oil mayo with organic ingredients and no preservatives or other junk). Next time I think I will include some broccoli florets as well. I don't really think of it as an alternative to potato salad, it really stands on its own! I love this salad and will make it again....and again!

Just a note, I am in the west, so I don't have Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs, but I do get my eggs locally from a neighbor who sells them.

How about the number of calories per serving. Great idea to limit the carbs, but calories count too

This was really good! I used a bag of chopped cauliflower from the produce section and microwaved it for two minutes.

Great question, Olivia! According to Incredible Egg, eggs that are hard boiled should be consumed within a week after cooking them. More specific information can be found on their website at: https://www.incredibleegg.org/cooking-school/tips-tricks/egg-storage/ We hope this helps!
