Awesome Potato Cauliflower Salad

I've been trying to use up the food I have on hand in the refrigerator. I had 1/2 head of cauliflower and some celery. I also needed to use the new potatoes and red onions. So, after googling a bit, I found a recipe for cauliflower salad on Spark People and thought I'd just add that to the potatoes and improvise from there. Look at how yummy it turned out!! It tastes so good, I immediately made it my lunch; a cup full on a bed of romaine!

Check out the red onion, bits of bacon, chopped celery. YUM! And I'm not really a huge potato salad fan.
You can see the mustard seeds also...

I diced a red onion...used my handy dandy dicer thing that you see on TV. Added 1/2 c. diced red onion.

I chopped up about 3-4 stalks of celery, finely chopped.

I boiled 8 medium size new potatoes, diced bite sized. I steamed the bite sized cauliflower pieces in a steaming tray above the potatoes....they cooked up first, then I just took them off and rinsed them with cold water.

I added 4-5 pieces of cooked bacon, diced. You could use bacon bits, about 1/2 c. I used 3/4 c. mayo, 1-2 TBSP of country style brown mustard and 1 heaping TBSP of pickle relish.
This recipe is so easy to make. You can add more cauliflower, and less potatoes if you want. Give it a try, and tell me how you like it! Click on the pictures, and you can see all of this deliciousness up close and personal!
