NOT Potato Salad
Shamelessly stolen from Bonni and altered to taste

1 large head cauliflower, roughly chopped
6 hard boiled egg whites, chilled & chopped
1/4 cup fat free ranch dressing
1 cups fat-fee mayonnaise
1/2 cup fat free sour cream
1 T dijon
1 cup diced red onion
3 celery stalks, diced
1/2 cup diced radishes
1/4 cup chopped chives
3 T rice vinegar
2 T chopped dill ( or 1 tsp dried )
2 T chopped parsley
1/4 tsp salt

In a large bowl, microwave cauliflower with 1/3 cup water for 6-8 minutes (until cauliflower is soft)

Stir together ranch mix, mayo, sour cream, dijon and salt. Set aside.

Once bowl is cool enough to handle, drain excess water from cauliflower. Lightly mash 2 cups of cauliflower and put rest aside. Put mashed cauliflower in blender, add 2 T of mayo mixture and puree until blended. Dont worry if not completely smooth. Pour remaining mayo mixture into blender and mix until blended and creamy.

Chop remaining cauliflower into 1/2 inch pieces. Place into a large bowl and add onion, celery, radishes and vinegar. Toss well and let sit 5 minutes.

Pour blender mixture over vegetables and mix well. Add chopped egg whites and herbs and stir lightly.

Chill several hours before serving. Sprinkle with paprika or sliced radishes.
