Cauliflower and Egg Salad

I have seen many variations of this — often calling it a mock potato salad — however you chose to refer to this dish it’s hearty and nourishing and delicious! And low carb and gluten free. Here’s my version …


2 cups Cauliflower, cut into bit-size chunks

1 tbsp water

1 tsp Olive Oil

2 large hard boiled Eggs

2 Scallions, finely chopped

1 tbsp fresh Tarragon, chopped

Kosher salt and fresh pepper

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 tsp wasabi mayo, or dijon mustard

2 tbsp light mayonnaise

1 tsp white wine vinegar

Large lettuce leaves in place of whole wheat wraps

DSC_3428Put the 1 tbsp water in a small non stick frying pan. Add cut cauliflower and heat over medium-high heat, stirring often. After 3 minutes add the olive oil, a sprinkle of kosher salt and pepper. Cook another 2-4 minutes, just until the cauliflower begins to get tender.

DSC_3415Put cauliflower on a plate to cool.

DSC_3417Meanwhile chop eggs, scallions and tarragon and put them into a medium bowl.

DSC_3418Add cauliflower after cooling slightly.

DSC_3421In a small bowl whisk together lemon juice, wasabi mayo or mustard, light mayonnaise, vinegar, pinch of salt and fresh pepper.

DSC_3422Gently toss until well blended.

DSC_3425Serve on lettuce leaves.
