Cauliflower "Potato" Salad

Thursday, October 13, 2011

Before I share this recipe, I wanted to share that I lost another pound bringing me to 145 lbs! So far so good! I will be in the 130s in no time!

I got this recipe from Lyn over at Escape from Obesity. She has a lot of great ideas and recipes on her blog that are quite delicious. This is another great one from Lyn that is slightly adapted to make 1 serving. I also made the addition she suggested using onion powder and it tasted delicious. I would have liked to use 2 tbsp of mayo to make it a bit more creamier, but I wanted to have chicken as my other lean so I couldn't afford to have the additional fat. If you have a lean from the leanest group, go ahead and add that additional mayo. Lyn also suggests you could use dijon mustard instead of mustard or adding a chopped dill pickle as your snack. Honestly, I would even take this to a pot luck if I added the additional mayo. It is pretty good to share : ) I love how we can still have substitutes for some of our fave dishes while on the Medifast plan. I have to say, cauliflower makes a great substitute for potatoes! Enjoy this yummy dish!
