“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!” - by Sarah Jo
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- 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.
- Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with foil.
- 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.
- 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.

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 moderati..." See moreon, 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."
"I enjoyed this dish. It's not exactly low calorie, but it is a great alternative to typical potato salad. The 2 dashes of Frank's Red Hot sauce added a great depth of flavor. I did not have fresh c..." See morehives on hand but will add those next time as I think they would add even more flavor. I will definitely make this again and plan on bringing it to a potluck soon. Thanks for the recipe."
