I recently stumbled upon a terrific website called It features recepies that are both delicious and low calorie. A member challanged hungry girl to make a low fat potato salad and this recipe is what she came up with. Using caualiflower instead of potatoes!! Who'd-a-thunk it!! P.S. the original recipe submitted by the member had 300 cal.per serv. and 20gr. fat. This one has 100cal. per serv. and 1.25gr. fat.!
