cauliflower "potato" salad

Cauliflower Salad!!!
I love potato salad...but I hate all those carbs...so I made a low carb potato salad / with cauliflower instead .... It was SOOOO good
1 he...ad of cauliflower steamed or boiled until tender in bite size pieces
6 boiled eggs (when done peel eggs, rinse and separate yokes into a bowl. Then mash the yolk and cut the whites into small bite size pieces then blend together.
1/3 cup (approx) miracle whip or mayonnaise (don't use light it has more carbs)
3 tbs of mustard
3 tbs of pickle relish
1/8 cup of chopped onion (uncooked) can use more if you prefer salt/pepper to taste
mix all together and you can garnish with egg slices and parsley
chill over night ( 1 cup of cauliflower is only 3 carbs vs 1 cup of potato is 37!!)
