Cauliflower and Egg Salad (Version 1)

This is a great substitute for a creamy potato salad and uses the wonderful cauliflower!  It tastes better after sitting for a few hours (in the refrigerator of course!).

  This is for all you low carbers who want a creamy potato salad on a glorious sunny day…make this instead!  I just love how versatile the wonderful cauliflower is!  You could easily sneak this dish upon others, just serve it, watch them scoff a large plateful, then tell them that it is cauliflower!!

I use dill but other fresh herbs would be as nice.  You could also add other veggies to this as well.  Celery would be nice but my husband hates the stuff so I do not often use this.  Spring onions would be nice too!  This was well received and second helpings all round!
