How To Prepare Keto Potato Salad

Preheat the oven to 375° F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

Place the cut cauliflower on the prepared baking sheets and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss together to make sure the cauliflower is evenly coated with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread the cauliflower into single layers on each sheet.

Roast the cauliflower in the oven for 30-35 minutes. You’ll know it’s ready when the florets just begin to brown and are fork tender. Allow the cauliflower to cool while you prepare the remaining ingredients.

Combine the mayo, mustard, chopped dill pickle and pickle juice, celery, green onion, and chopped hard boiled eggs in a large mixing bowl. Next, add the cooled cauliflower and mix everything together well. Taste and season with more salt and pepper, if desired. Top the keto potato salad with crumbled bacon.

You’ll want to refrigerate the cauliflower salad for at least 30 minutes to make sure that the cauliflower is no longer warm. This will ensure that the cauliflower salad is cold and tasty with a refreshing texture.
