Cauliflower Salad, Courtesy of Sandra Byrd, Author!

My Facebook and author friend, Sandra Byrd, shared this recipe, Cauliflower Salad with her followers on Facebook. Upon research I found that a serving of cauliflower alone has 5 calories whereas a potato has 110 calories and cooked pasta can have up to 221 calories plain. So right there you will save calories and have a healthier dish for that summer picnic. So I hope that you enjoy the salad and while you are here, scroll down after the recipe and learn more about Sandra Byrd, one of my favorite historical authors.

Cauliflower Salad

1 head of cauliflower cooked until tender in bite size pieces. 

(microwave 4 minutes, stir, then cook for another 4 minutes)

6 boiled eggs, peeled and cut into small pieces

1/3 cup mayonnaise; don’t use light; it has more carbs

1 ½ tbs mustard; I used dijon

6 - 12 tbs pickle relish (to taste)

1/4 cup raw chopped onion (or more if you prefer)

salt/pepper to taste (you can also sprinkled with dill)

Mix all together and you can garnish with egg slices and 

parsley or paprika. Chill for several hours or overnight.
