Ingredients

Salad

  • 1 large head cauliflower
  • 2 large 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

  • 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.
  • Once the cauliflower is cooled add the eggs, celery, green onions, and dill relish.
  • In a small bowl, add the dressing ingredients and whisk to combine.
  • Gently fold the dressing into the cauliflower mixture, stirring to coat evenly.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour to chill completely.
