Low Carb Daikon Radish Dill Pickle Egg Salad

Daikon Radish Dill Pickle Egg SaladYou know, even I can get a little tired serving cauliflower yet one more way (and I already eat a lot of cauliflower as evidenced by the number of recipes on this site) which is why I decided to try making this Daikon Radish Dill Pickle Egg Salad recipe. Looks like potato salad, tastes like potato salad but…no potatoes. Back in my Colorado days I had an older friend who, when she had me over for dinner, I ask her nicely to make “her” potato salad.  I think there are a couple of reasons I loved this:  1.)  I loved Elva and 2.) I love dilled pickles. Now yes, in those days I did eat it as a real potato salad.  Do Daikon radishes taste like potatoes?  No they don’t, but the great news is, when cooked they really don’t taste like much of anything and take on beautifully any flavors you are adding to them, kinda like German Potato Salad if made properly.  So, if you like dilled pickles the way I do, then this is a terrific way to eat a very low carb “potato” salad and which would be perfect with Southern Deep Fried Chicken on a picnic or when you are having fun and grilling steaks.
