Keto fauxtato salad

One of my family's favorite summer salads is our homemade potato salad. Of course when you eat the keto diet way you can't have potatoes. Sigh. That's ok though, luckily my ingenuity in the kitchen helps us create amazing alternatives that everyone will enjoy.

I mastered a keto diet approved "faux-tato" salad, a traditional version like my homemade potato salad. So, I decided to try something different.  This keto fauxtato salad  is SO EASY and will make a great side dish for any BBQ.

There is no stove top cooking with this recipe... which means... no heating up that already hot from summer kitchen!

Here is how to make our Keto fauxtato salad

  • 1 bag frozen cauliflower
  • ½ cup salsa
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
