I liked this very well. It reminds me more of deli-style potato salad than Helen's "Potato" Salad, which is also very good. This one has a Miracle Whip, sweet kind of flavor and Helen's is more of a mustard potato salad. I like them both and it will be difficult to decide which to make. I made mine without the onion. You could add hard boiled eggs, but be sure to add them to the carb count.
TIP: There is enough dressing with this salad that you could use 1 1/2 pounds of cauliflower for about 8-12 servings. The carb count per serving would still be about the same, you just get more servings.
VARIATION: Use chopped fresh cauliflower (raw), instead of frozen, for a nice crunchy salad.
