I had a whirlwind month last month.

I spent 4 days at the International Food Bloggers Conference in Juneau Alaska, came home for 3 days, and then left for Cleveland Ohio for 3 days to go to the Certified Angus Beef® brand's Culinary Center with several of my favorite blogger friends.

I will be posting about all of that soon but, the first thing I wanted to do when I got home was put my low carb spin on an amazing potato salad we had at The Larder Delicatessen and Bakery


The Larder Delicatessen and Bakery Cleveland, OH


They make their own vinegar there out of beer from local breweries. The potato salad was a vinegar-based salad with mustard seeds in it.

The tang, the zip, OhhEmmmGeee my tastebuds were in heaven!

I literally dreamed about that potato salad!!

So, as soon as I got home, I got into the kitchen and put the old thinking cap on.

With my Deviled Egg Cauliflower Salad being uber popular here on the blog, I knew y'all would welcome another low carb/keto yummy to make for summer BBQs and cook-outs.

I have to admit though, Kevin did give me "the look" when I said I was making something else with cauliflower.

My reaction?

Whatever dude, you will eat potatoes 55 kabillion ways!

I really think it is just the word.

Cauliflower.

It brings about a sort of knee-jerk "Ewwww" reaction out of some people.

Even though he has loved EVERY . SINGLE . DAMN . CAULILFOWER . RECIPE . I . HAVE . MADE.

I still get the face.

Now, for those of you that embrace the loveliness and versatility of cauliflower, let's talk, shall we?

I have been loving the amazing weather that we have had here in Western Washington.

I know some of y'all have been really getting hit with the heat, and I feel for ya, I do!

Since I have acclimated to WA, anything over 80 has me running for the shade, or indoors for my air conditioner.

I know, I am a big baby, but when you are used to weather in the 60's, the bod just doesn't dig the uber high temps!

We usually get a couple of weeks of 90's at the end of summer now and I dread those weeks!!

When it is in the "zone" here, it is 75 to 80 and I can't wait to get outside and fire up the BBQs

We got a Traeger last year and Kevin gave our offset charcoal grill/smoker to my son.

I was bummed, but we had fun learning how to make everything with it.

However, this year, I missed charcoal so much I went out and got him a Weber with a rotisserie attachment for Father's Day.

That backfired.

Now he says that the Weber is HIS.

Territorial much?

That's OK, it has given me more time to work on yummies to go with all that grilled/BBQed goodness.

Things like this salad.

I already have quite a few low carb sides that work really well with BBQ, picnic, party food. But this just needed to happen.

It really is easy to make. Just soak some mustard seeds, fry some bacon (you could even use the packaged cooked bacon if you want), chop some veggies and your cauliflower. Boil, whisk, mix, BOOM!

Deliciousness!!
