    This was very good. A nice lower carb alternative to potato salad and a great way to eat more veggies. Some liked the crunch more than potato salad. I used 4 cups of cauliflower, though, instead of 2. - 9/21/09

    I absolutely love this. I've made it twice since Saturday - the second time a huge batch so I can take it to work over the next few days. I did tweak it though, adding curry powder. A different and flavorful way to go. Thank you! - 8/18/09

    I absolutely loved it! Added some chopped dill pickles. Was a little sweet for hubby (most potato salad is), so I'll add less Miracle Whip and more Mayo next time as a compromise, but I really did love it just the way it is! - 5/30/10

  • I made this today to go with our dinner of steak and artichokes. I LOVED it! I used mayo and "Miracle Mayo", a product from Walden Farms that has zero carbs, zero fats, but GREAT flavor! Potatoes are tastless anyway, so the dressing mix is what you really taste!!! Brilliant!!! - 8/16/12

  • I rated this "very good" and it definitely was. We doubled the recipe and used green onions instead of red because we didn't have any red onions. Hubby added a bit of bacon bits to his and I added salt & pepper to the works. We will definitely make this again. - 8/15/10

  • I like it very mustardy and only added about 3 T of mayo, no miracle whip. I am thinking of adding horseradish to the individual servings as my husband is a SuperTaster and doesn't like anything too strong. I added some navy beans for fiber, they have no taste but add creaminess and FIBER! - 5/30/10
