Reviews for Faux Potato Salad
"Loved this! Very fresh and colorful too."
"This is great! I made it several times last year and it was a hit every time. First time I made it I pretty much followed the recipe, however, the next time I added a few more veggies. I used this recipe to add to the list of summer salads that can get repetitive by mid July. I like to change things up from time to time so the taste buds don't get bored."
"I made this for a social event. I found that the women seem to like it more than the men, but overall they liked it. As I try to eat healthy and eat less potatoes, I found I really liked it and it will be a keeper for me."
"This was a great alternative to the starch and higher calories of potato salad. The crunch of the vegetables was great. I might just use Dill Relish next time instead of chopping the pickles. My head of cauliflower was huge, so I had to double up the ingredients. Turned out great and I was for sure make it again!"
"I do not like potato salad. As a diabetic, my husband should not eat potato salad. So this a great recipe for us.My son, who works in the food industry, said it needs more salt and I agree. The salad needs to be refigerated for several hours for the flavors to blend.I made some adaptations. I omitted the olives and dill pickle (I don't like them). I cubed and cooked two potatoes, which I added. Just a little bit of carbs.For additional seasoning I added garlic powder (1 tsp.). For a better flavor I used 1/4 cup Greek yogurt and 1/4 cup mayonnaise.I will definately make more this summer. Great for diabetics."
