Description

Low carb, dairy-free potato salad made with cauliflower and a creamy cashew dressing instead of mayo.


Ingredients

  • 5 cups cauliflower florets
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ¼ cup chopped green onion
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion or shallot
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh dill, chopped

Creamy Cashew Dressing

  • 1 cup soaked raw cashews*
  • 2 ½ Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon prepared mustard (yellow or dijon)
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh dill
  • 1 Tablespoons shallot
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ⅓ cup water

Instructions

  1. Place cashews in a bowl. Cover with water and soak for about 1-2 hours. Drain and rinse thoroughly.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add cauliflower and cook until tender but still firm, about 10 minutes. Drain, run cold water over the cauliflower to cool. Drain completely.

  3. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil; cover, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove eggs from hot water, cool, peel and chop.

  4. Meanwhile, in a blender combine all dressing ingredients and blend until smooth.

  5. In a large bowl, add the cauliflower, eggs, celery, green onion, shallot and dill.

  6. Add dressing, mix together well and refrigerate until chilled. Serve and enjoy within 1-2 days.

Notes

  • For a mayo based dressing, just sub ½ cup mayo (I like avocado oil mayo) in place of the cashews and don’t add any water.
