    This is a great idea. It needed a little more flavor for my taste, so I added onion and increased the mustard and pickle relish. - 7/29/08

    I make this a lot.....Be sure to cook the cauliflower good and drain well...don't want watery salad....I then just use what I normally would for potato salad....
    We think it is great.......and I love Faux Potatoes... - 7/26/08

    This is wonderful. Tastes just like potato salad but not as heavy since there are no potatos. It is on my list of summer staples - a great side dish for grilling out. Also, it makes enough to last the week. - 6/16/07

    i didn't add the egg which means it's less calorie. this is really good. it tastes just about like normal potato salad except the texture is just a little different. i'm glad someone found a healthier version on potato salad i can enjoy picnics again!! - 5/30/07

    Interesting enough to try, with my own additions, as suggested. One note: 16 tablespoons mayo = 1 cup. - 8/30/10

    too bland as is, but add 1 tbsp of light sour cream and still only have only 3 WW points per serving. - 7/26/08

    I made this yesterday. I love cauliflower & potato salad, this was great. I didn't have enough mayo but it was still so good. I ate nothing else for lunch except this. I gave the recipe to my Mom she's diabetic, can't eat a lot of potatoes. She made it the same night & loved it too. Thanks. - 3/28/07

    Interesting enough to give it a try. I believe I will also add some sliced green onions to it. I doubt I will call it "potato" salad. The "mashed potato" cauliflower dish did not fool my husband. - 7/14/09

    I brought this dish to a cook-out and no one liked it. I thought it was just ok, definitely a good healthy concept, but it's just not the same as potato salad! I also didn't cook the cauliflower long enough. - 5/9/07

    This is pretty good! Not everyone's potato salad tastes the same, though, so I had to add some cider vinegar to this for it to work for me. Still, it was not a big winner with my family so I don't think I'll make it again. Cauliflower "mashed potatoes" is also terrific. - 7/9/08

    Another idea is to make sweet potato salad using whatever basic potato salad recipe you like--or this one with that substitution. Of course it will have more calories but also full of highly desirable nutrients. - 10/21/10
