Really enjoyed this recipe. As my husband said, it is a crunchy potato salad without the potatoes.
I used raw cauliflower rather than cooking it.
This salad is a nice change for something different. We didn't love the taste of the pickle relish in this dish. If you like it in potato and macaroni salad then you will like it in here. I should have followed my instincts and left it out. This does keep very well in the fridge for a couple of days. It is a nice salad to pack in lunches. Thanks Rosalie for sharing.
I am completely won over with this recipe! It is so easy, and scrumptious. I will never have to worry about what to do with extra cauliflower again.
A good substitute for potato salad. Used Sandwich Spread and may. Didn't add extra pickle relish. Love the crunch!
This is a really nice change of pace. I steamed my head of cauliflower to ensure that it wouldn't get too soft. I used 4 eggs, and chopped bread and butter pickles in place of the relish. I also used half of a large carrot and an extra green onion. I know that straight mayo would not do it for us so I have a standard 'dressing' for salads like this - mixing mayo, sour cream and honey mustard significantly thinned with milk and some pickle juice then seasoned to taste. The crunch of the cauliflower and the pickle is what makes the salad for me - none of that mealy potato texture. Plus - at less than half the calories of potato salad you just can't go wrong. Thanks for sharing, Rosalie! This is going to be a new standard.
I really enjoyed this. It tastes just like egg salad but but the nutritional benefits of cauliflower. I make exactly as written and served with whole wheat pitas.
I just finished making this and I am very pleased! I only added one green onion, as I'm not a huge fan, but it gives the salad a delicate flavor I am quite enjoying (:
Awesome my little kids loved it. My oldest, six, asked me to make it for him every day!
