Bacon and no-potato salad recipe

Bacon and no-potato salad recipe

  I love a good mayo based side salad (blame on the Scandinavian heritage!) and potato salad especially has always been among my favourites. I trialled out Everyday Paleo’s No-potato salad recipe with some tweaks and the result was a raging success – in fact, the man declared it the best potato salad he’s ever had!   Ingredients: 1/4 – 1 cup of homemade paleo mayo* 1/2 cauliflower, steamed in florets and crumbled 3 boiled eggs, cut small 1/2 red onion, minced 2 cloves garlic, minced 150g bacon, grilled crispy and chopped small lots of gherkins 1 tsp Dijon mustard black pepper   Instructions: Boil the eggs (10 mins), steam the cauliflower in florets (8 mins) and grill the bacon to start with. Cool the boiled eggs in cold water and rinse the cauliflower in cold water to cool them down. Mince the red onion and garlic and mix them with homemade paleo mayo* (view recipe here) in a smaller bowl. Add in chopped gherkins, Dijon mustard, black pepper and mix well. Crumble cauliflower into a big bowl. Add in chopped eggs and bacon. Pour in the mayo mix and mix the whole lot well. Serve as a side for a good steak or just eat as such – absolutely delicious! (* I used the whole batch of homemade mayo, but if you don’t like your salad quite so mayo heavy, start with less and keep adding until you reach the desired consistency)  ...
Recipe for homemade paleo mayo

Recipe for homemade paleo mayo

  I have tried quite a few paleo mayo recipes and not only are they tricky to get right, every one has tasted worse than the next. Making this one in my Blendtec Twister jar is ridiculously quick, fail safe and delicious! Ingredients: 2 egg yolks 2 tsp apple cider vinegar 1 tsp Dijon mustard 1/2 tsp sea salt 3/4 cup plain olive oil (not virgin or extra virgin!)   Instructions: Tip: Selecting a plain olive oil is very important. Virgin and Extra Virgin olive oils have a much stronger taste to them and it tends to create a very unpleasant after taste to the mayo! Using a blender on medium low speed (2 on Blendtec, using the Twister Jar) blend the egg yolks, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard and salt for 15 seconds. Turn speed down to low (1 on Blendtec) and leave blade running. While blade is running on low, pour in the olive oil. I use a Twister Jar on my Blendtec blender, and pretty much pour the oil in as quickly as I can to make sure I get it all in before the mayo is done. Depending on your blender this should happen within seconds and your mayo is done!...
