“Not Potato Salad” Salad

Makes roughly 2 servings (see directions) 



3-3 1/2 cups lightly steamed cauliflower, cut into small florets 

2 stalks celery, diced 

1/4 cup yellow onion, diced 

1 Tbsp. fresh parsley or green onion, chopped 

2 hardboiled eggs, chopped 

2 Tbsp. Walden Farms Mayo 

1 Tbsp. mustard 

Salt and pepper to taste 



Mix all ingredients together. If you take your salad and divide it into two this will be equal to 2 cups of vegetables each. You can add more cauliflower or additional vegetables, just adjust your portioning. You can also use the entire hardboiled egg or just the white. If the yolk is used then subtract 1 ounce of protein at dinner from your normal 8 ounces of meat protein—each 2 cup portion of veggies would contain 1 oz. protein to subtract.

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar 

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 

1 packet of Splenda 

1 bunch of the “flat leaf” kale, stems removed and leaves julienned

bell pepper, any color, julienned 

1 stalk celery, thinly sliced 

1/2 small red onion, very thinly sliced 

Tight handful of parsley leaves, chopped 

Salt and pepper, to taste 



Whisk together olive oil, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, and splenda to make a “vinaigrette.” Toss vegetables in large bowl. Drizzle with vinaigrette. Taste and season with salt and pepper. 


Kaleslaw can be served immediately. It will keep in the refrigerator, covered, for about a day, after which, it takes on the taste and texture of fresh sauerkraut.
