Recently, one of my really close friends shared with me how he was using cauliflower in his cooking. I had shared with him my love for cauliflower crusted pizza. By the way if you haven't tried it, you must! This is how I trick my children into eating their vegetables!
My boys can't tell the difference between regular crusted pizza and the cauliflower crusted pizza. My friend shared that he had actually replaced potatoes with cauliflower in his potato salad. What a genius idea! I tried it out and I must say that I prefer cauliflower over the potatoes.
Whatever you normally put in your potato salad would work- just add cauliflower instead of the potatoes. This is low carb and a much healthier option.
