Keto Low Carb Cauliflower Salad


This Keto Low Carb Cauliflower Salad is my low-carb potato salad without the potatoes! Cauliflower is the most amazing ingredient for helping cut carbs. You can get really creative with cauliflower – I use it as a rice substitute all the time and I’ve even used it in place of a regular pizza base. My kids weren’t too happy with me that night, but I thought it tasted great!

Not only is cauliflower a great carb substitute, it is also super healthy and nutritional. I cut up a whole cauliflower head and cook it lightly until it’s tender. Once the cauliflower has cooled I mix it with the other ingredients in a mayo and mustard dressing. I chill it in the refrigerator for a day before eating it to allow the flavor to develop. This salad is totally delicious – my whole family loves it.

To make my version of Keto Low Carb Cauliflower Salad, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Keto Low Carb Cauliflower Salad


Cook the cauliflower


Add the cauliflower to a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until the florets are tender, but still firm. This should take about 10 minutes. Drain the water and allow the cauliflower to cool down.


Make the dressing


In a large salad bowl, whisk the mayo, mustard, salt and pepper together.


Combine the remaining ingredients with the dressing


Add the cauliflower, eggs, onion, peas, dill pickles, and bacon to the bowl with dressing and mix until well coated.




Cover the cauliflower salad and chill in the refrigerator for a minimum two hours or ideally overnight. This salad tastes better the longer it is chilled.



Serve this salad as a side dish or at a picnic or barbecue.

Not much happening in this meal so I'm giving it a 4 for lack of creativity compared to a lot of other things you guys have made but it did have taste so i'll give you that.

Less mayo would've made this a lot better it overwhelmed the dish.

Miyah Finkley

One of my all time favorite cauliflower salad recipes i've ever found online it taste good and is simple to make!

I have never managed to get my kids to eat green peas up until today, they thought this was some type of mac and cheese and devoured the thing whole! Apparently tricking your kids into thinking that healthy food is something tasty works lol!!

Affordable and a good side dish or small lunch to bring to work.

Audree Savich

Welp I'm officially going healthy after finding this website haha.

Flavorful and scrumptious but I think it couldve been a lot better the texture was just too mushy and there wasn't much of a satifying crunch to it like the American macaroni salad. Nonetheless it had a great taste just needs bit more lovin :)

Aiyanna Nau

Dill pickles was a good choice for this salad gives it a crunch and a bit of a zest.

Ali Bunfill

I added a few more things into mine like some green olives, sundried tomatos and parmesan cheese on the top.

Reece Barty

This recipe had me sold after I read pickles and bacon.


Thank you! Approved!
