My husband was reluctantly surprised at the flavor of this dish.  As I have said before, I am slowly trying to cut some carbs from his diet. So this makes another win for me. You guys just don’t know how bad it was with him…he would wrap macaroni and cheese in a flour tortilla! Ugh! (husband edit: Mac and cheese wrapped in a tortilla is AWESOME!)

Cook the cauliflower, you can do this by steaming or boiling. But if you boil it make sure it’s completely drained, dry and cooled before adding the dressing. I use microwave steaming bags they are just way more convenient and no cleanup.

Once the cauliflower is cool, add the chopped eggs, celery, green onions and relish.

Ingredients
Salad
  • 1 large head cauliflower
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1/2 cup celery, diced
  • 2 green onions, diced (green tops only)
  • 2 tablespoons dill relish
Dressing
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt (or more to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Cut the cauliflower into bite-sized pieces. Cook in a steamer basket on the stovetop or use microwave steam bags.

    Steam for 3-5 minutes until tender-crisp, checking for doneness with a fork. Add the steamed cauliflower to a large bowl and let cool. Do not overcook the cauliflower, it will make the salad too soft and mushy.

  2. Once the cauliflower is cooled add the eggs, celery, green onions, and dill relish.

  3. In a small bowl, add the dressing ingredients and whisk to combine.

  4. Gently fold the dressing into the cauliflower mixture, stirring to coat evenly.

  5. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour to chill completely.
