Prep: 25 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Chill: 1 hour


6 cups chopped cauliflower (about 1 large head)

10 oz. (about 2 small) white potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces

3/4 cup light mayonnaise

1/2 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt

2 tsp. Dijon mustard

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/2 tsp. salt

6 hard-boiled egg whites, chopped

1 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped celery

2 tbsp. seasoned rice vinegar

2 tbsp. chopped dill

2 tbsp. chopped parsley

Optional seasoning: paprika

Optional topping: chopped chives


Place cauliflower and chopped potato in a large microwave-safe bowl. Add 1/2 cup water, cover, and microwave for 6 minutes. Stir, re-cover, and microwave for 4 minutes, or until tender. Once cool enough to handle, drain excess water.

Transfer 2 cups of the cooked cauliflower only (no potato) to a blender or food processor. Add mayo, yogurt, mustard, seasonings, and 1 tbsp. water. Blend/process until smooth and uniform.

Add mixture to the large bowl, and stir to coat. Add all remaining ingredients. Mix well.

Refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour.


Prep/Cook FYI: Times do not include hard-boiling, peeling, and chopping the egg whites. If not done in advance, allow about 5 minutes for prepping and 20 minutes for cooking. Or look for hard-boiled eggs in the fridge section at the store.
