Today we are going to make a low carb and Keto version of German potato salad. And because potatoes are off limits on a low carb diet, we’re going to turn to our good friend the cauliflower.
This salad is pretty simple to put together.
First you roast a head of cauliflower for about 20-25 minutes in a very hot oven. Then you saute some bacon until it’s nice and crispy. Cook some onions in the bacon grease, and then you are ready to put the salad together. Mix the cauliflower up with the bacon, onions and a simple Dijon mustard vinaigrette and you are good to go. You’ll have a low carb mock German potato salad that is perfect for a summer picnic or get together.
And all brought to you by the power of cauliflower.
