How to Make Cauliflower Salad (or Mock Potato Salad)
- Place coarsely chopped cauliflower in a microwave safe dish; add 1/4 cup of water and cover dish. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Remove from microwave and allow cauliflower to sit for about 5 minutes. Cauliflower will still be slightly crunchy. Drain off excess liquid. I put paper towels in a strainer and let the liquids drain for about 5 minutes.
- Add eggs, celery and onion; toss. Add mayo (about 1/2 cup) and a couple of tablespoons of mustard. Add seasoning to taste and stir to combine, if to dry add additional mayo.
NOTE: I used about 1/8 tsp dill weed in the salad and then sprinkled a very small amount on top.
