    This recipe as is leaves something to be desired. You don't serve potato salad raw! I made modifications by lightly steaming cauliflower (until barely soft NOT mushy!), adding diced celery, onion, chopped egg, & used cream instead of milk to lower carb count.Turned out MUCH better than above recipe! - 11/16/08

    I used to make something similar to this years ago back in the 60's when I first started with Weight Watchers. It was great, and I DID add the normal things like egg and pickles. Dividing it and ate it in several portions. - 3/24/10

    I make a cooked version of this, but figured I'd give it a try. Definately NOT something I'll make again. I want the flavor and texture of Potato salad, not cauliflower with dressing. - 11/16/08

    I find the exclusion of fats a bit troubling since they are required in any diet and the use of artificial sweeteners is verboten in my house since they create an increased desire to eat. I make this however I use regular products since the quatities are small. Buttermilk will add an addtional layer - 3/24/10

    I am confused why people keep referring to it as a mock mashed potatoes recipe.. it says mock potato salad.. i agree that it makes more sense to cook the cauliflower a little before.. - 11/17/08

    I absolutely love this. Have had it every week and even made it for Easter. My son liked it too. I also use the "sauce" and mix with a bag of premade cole slaw it is wonderful and even lower in calories (if that is possible!) - 3/23/08

    I didn't call it "mock mashed potatoes" when I served it to my family. Instead I referred to it as a new cauliflower recipe I wanted to try. So no one was comparing it to mashed potatoes and loved it! Hahaha! :-) - 3/23/08

    This is mock potatoe salad, not mashed potatoes! Maybe that is why it did not satisfy the mashed potatoe fans! - 11/16/08

    A good beginning, but where are the veggies? Pimiento or bell pepper, celery, onion, pickles, eggs - dill, anything you would put in potato salad is great in this cauliflower salad. Oh, and if you are trying to mimic potato salad, then you need to cook the cauliflower - who wants raw potato salad? - 3/23/08

    I tried it with raw cauliflower, somewhat OK will try it again next time with Cauli lightly steamed.
