Jalapeno Popper Egg Salad {Keto}

Potato salads are one of my favorites for a summer BBQ, I like them super cold, very creamy and tons of pickles/flavor. I find myself equally loving Egg salads (not necessarily for a BBQ but you get my drift). Since going low-carb I wanted to shake up the 'ol potato salad, add some non-starchy vegetables, lots of jalapeños (don't worry, they're not that spicy actually) and bump up the protein with some hard-boiled eggs.

What are some of your favorite summertime dishes?


Have you ever gone on a "diet" and found something you really MISSED out on?


Did you ever try to recreate them and then LOVE the new recipe more than your old favorite?

Let's not be fooled, Cauliflower is not the same thing as a russet potato-- I know that. For one, their texture is totally different, their size, and the nutrients. When I change around recipes either to fit a specific diet plan or to make it more healthy, I only change 1 or 2 big things. What does this mean? If I am ever going to make one of these swaps:

  • Sour Cream--> Greek Yogurt + lime juice

  • Sugar--> Honey, Monkfruit, maple syrup, etc.

  • Butter--> Applesauce

  • Egg-->Flaxmeal

  • Potatoes/Rice--> Cauliflower

  • AP Flour--> Whole Wheat Flour/Almond Flour

I only make 1 maximum 2 swaps; otherwise you've now changed the ENTIRE recipe and you can't even call it the same thing anymore. The goal is to make some modifications based on the health goals you are trying to achieve. You're not to overhaul the entire recipe. Am I an advocate for changing all recipes around? No. But I have some VERY specific health goals right now and in order for me to achieve them, I have to make some changes to classical favorites without sacrificing taste.


So 1 to 2 things ONLY.
