Special Notes On The Potato Salad:
You want to avoid typical mayo that uses refined vegetable oils such as canola, soy and corn oil. Best to opt for the avocado oil mayo that you can order here or find at your health food store. You can also leave out the bacon if you don’t want that in it. I don’t advocate eating pig meat as you can read about here but you can find a good quality grass-fed beef bacon or turkey bacon.
I would recommend getting the highest quality natural, pasture-raised bacon. You should be able to find this at your local health food store, Whole Foods, Sprouts, etc. If you have trouble finding organic and pasture-raised products at your local health food store than try out US Wellness Meats where you can order just about any type of meat you want and it is all the highest quality.
Dr Jockers Comments
Potato salad is an American classic for cookouts, picnics and so much more. Your typical potato salad is full of carbs and bad fats such as canola and soybean oil. This recipe uses cauliflower to mimic the potato flavor and is full of healthy fats, antioxidants and protein.
Red onion, chives and cauliflower are rich in sulfur compounds that support phase II liver detoxification and improve our hormonal balance. They are also great prebiotic sources to nurture a healthy gut lining. This recipe is a great part of a healthy real food ketogenic lifestyle that will improve your gut health, fat burning and overall energy levels.
This recipe is a perfect side dish for the Savory Herb Lamb Chops or the Golden Lime Chicken Kabobs or you can just enjoy it with some good grass-fed hot dogs and hamburgers (without the buns of course!)
I think you will enjoy this recipe as much as my family and I and would love to know your thoughts in the comments box below. If you are looking for more great keto meal ideas than check out our complete Navigating the Ketogenic Diet program here
