Get ready for cookout season with my Potato Salad made with cauliflower! It’s low-carb, vitamin packed and only 6 ingredients!
With the coldest weather behind us, cookout season is here in the mountains. I’m even planning to have just a few very close friends over this weekend. Hopefully I can get unpacked from New York by then! I’m coming back home later today.
What says cookout more than potato salad!? It’s probably no big surprise that I’m not a huge fan of the traditional mayo covered kind, but I do love all the other flavors in it. So I set out to make a healthier version for the season. This Potato Salad made with cauliflower not only tastes amazing, but is low-carb, low-calorie and nutrient packed.

Now, to be completely honest with you I personally have nothing against eating carbs. I love potatoes of all kinds. BUT I know many of you avoid them (hello… Pops!) and it works well for your diet. I’m a firm believer in finding what works for your body and finding balance.
But even though I don’t actually follow low-carb I really appreciate this Potato Salad made with cauliflower because cauliflower is such a hidden super food! Did you know it is packed with vitamin C? It also has vitamin K, folate and vitamin B6 among others.
I was surprised to learn that because cauliflower is white! Since it’s not part of the “rainbow” I never really thought of it having all those nutrients. But it does! The egg and greek yogurt in this also add some protein, which is great for a vegetarian diet.
So step aside traditional potato salad, a new star of summer is in town!
I hope you enjoy making my Potato Salad made with cauliflower!
Low Carb Cauliflower "Potato" Salad
- 1 head cauliflower, about 6 cups of florets
- 4 hard boiled egg whites, chopped
- 2 celery stalks, about 1/2 cup, diced
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1-2 tablespoons mustard
- 1 tablespoon pickle relish
- 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
- salt & pepper to taste
- optional garnish: sliced green onions!
- Cut the cauliflower into small bite sized florets. Steam it 5-7 minutes until it is tender but not soggy. A little bit of a bite is good!
- Allow the cauliflower to cool.
- Once cool mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Add the salt and pepper to taste.
- Garnish with the green onions.
- Store in the fridge.
Be cautious adding additional salt because the celery salt already has salt in it.
