Southern-Style Cauliflower “Potato” Salad

This is one of my favorite healthy “imposter” style sides, you can hardly tell Mr. Potato Head ditched the party! Instead of using potatoes loaded with carbs, this recipe uses nutritiously delicious cauliflower. Because cauliflower has a similar starchy consistency to potatoes, it’s taken over the past few years whether it’s through pizza crust, mashed potatoes, rice or sides like this! Plus it has an amazing taste and is a great canvas for other flavors. Serve this up at your next BBQ or gathering!
