“A lower in carb version of my favorite baked potato salad. Most people when I serve this can't tell right away that this is made with cauliflower. Even my cauliflower hating husband enjoys this salad!”

Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. When cool, crumble into bacon bits.
  2. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with foil.
  3. Combine the cauliflower, olive oil, garlic, salt, and black pepper in large bowl. Spread the cauliflower on the foil-lined baking sheet, and roast in the preheated oven until the cauliflower is lightly browned, about 15 to 20 minutes. Cool.
  4. Place the cooled roasted cauliflower, sour cream, and mayonnaise in a large bowl; stir. Fold in the shredded Cheddar cheese, bacon bits, green onion, chives, pepper sauce, and paprika. Adjust salt and black pepper. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours before serving.

I was intrigued by this recipe because I was amazed that a side dish made from the healthy cauliflower could be 352 calories per serving. It's made with fat-free sour cream and reduced fat mayo, after all. Then I looked at the proportions. Even a half a cup of low fat mayo is a lot. And one whole cup of full fat cheese adds on the fat. So I reduced the sour cream and mayo to a total of one half cup, and I didn't even use all of it. I cut the olive oil to one tablespoon and used only 1/4 cup of Parmesan instead of a full cup of cheddar. This was delicious and we enjoyed it very much. Thanks so much for the post, Sarah Jo!

For the reviewers who are concerned about this recipe being "healthy", this is a LOW CARB recipe. Most cream-based salads aren't usually made for the mindset of eating healthy and if eaten in moderation, there shouldn't be a concern. The mayonnaise and sour cream should be added to your liking and it's really just a matter of how wet you like it. Fat free plain or greek yogurt can be used in place of part of the sour cream or mayonnaise.

At last minute (the morning of Memorial Day) our friends invited us to a cookout. They said they'd make the meat if we brought the sides. I knew they all (including my husband) loved the "baked potato salad" from the Fresh Market around the corner from us, but I am back on low-carb and needed something that would be similar for me (as I love the baked tater salad too, but obviously couldn't eat it...) and...This was AWESOME! I used full-fat sour cream and full-fat mayo as I am low-carb and low-carbers eat FAT (because it's good for you!) No, this is not low-calorie, as low-carb does not usually (ever) mean low-calorie...it was WONDERFUL! I bought a block of white cheddar and shredded it, instead of using pre-shredded cheese. The friends who invited us over USUALLY make fun of my "low-carb creations" ... and they ate it up! note - if you want this to be low-er fat, go ahead and use fat free mayo (or low-fat, ff is gross, in my opinion, but to each their own)...and the same with the sour cream. Otherwise, go for the full fat as this was amazing! And I will be making it again and again!
