Living a new lifestyle, I'm trying to come up with recipes that will allow me to still enjoy the foods I love without all the calories, carbs and fat. I LOVE potato salad but can't have the carbs so I replaced them with cauliflower and you can't even tell a difference. It's got the same great flavor minus the fat, carbs and calories. It was even better the third and fourth day. Recipe and photo are my own.
