Expert Tips

Mix it up and make it your own by using the same technique with different potato salad ingredients. Go mayo-free, like German potato salad, or even mash the cauliflower for a delightfully "creamy" version.

This salad gains flavor as it sits. Allowing the cauliflower to marinate in the dressing allows the flavors to meld and improve, making this a great do-ahead dish.

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
