Delicious Dill Cauliflower Salad

This is my Monday Mid-day Munchies post!  I made this cauliflower salad with a chicken burger (bun-less) for lunch today! Hope this post helps take care of your Monday blues.

Delicious Dill Cauliflower Salad

Sometimes I really miss potato salad. A few years back, I found Everyday Paleo's 'No-tato Salad'. This is my version of a delicious and creamy cauliflower salad. It has yummy seasonings that will have you going back for seconds!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 4

3 cups cauliflower, chopped
6 pieces of bacon, cooked crisp
4 green onions, sliced
6 hard boiled eggs, chopped
¼ cup celery or water chestnuts, diced
4 tablespoons Paleo mayonnaise
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon onion powder
⅛ teaspoon dill
sea salt and pepper to taste

1.  Add the chopped cauliflower to a large bowl and add two tablespoons of water. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave it for 4-6 minutes. Check it frequently towards the end of the cooking time because you want it tender but not mushy.(To speed the cooking of the cauliflower I microwave it, but if you have the time you can steam it for about 20 minutes). Drain the cauliflower and rinse it with cool water.

2. In a large bowl add the cauliflower, bacon, green onions, eggs, celery (or water chestnuts), mayonnaise,  garlic powder, onion powder, dill, salt, and pepper. Toss the ingredients until they are completely combined.
