Thanksgiving Day on P3

So as usual the big feast will be held at my house. So I am trying a few p3 friendly recipes along with the usual's only problem is I haven't taste tested some of these.

Here are an additional few I will be making:

Mock Potato Salad ( to go with ham)

1 pound cauliflower (cut into 1/2" cubes
1/4 cup fresh onion diced
1 large celery stalk chopped
3 strips of bacon cooked and crumbled
2 hard boiled eggs chopped
1/4 cup ranch dip made with sour cream
1/2 tsp seasoning salt
1/4 tsp lemon pepper
1/4 cup sliced almonds(optional)
1/2 tsp parsley flakes

Pour 1 inch of water into a pan with lid and add cauliflower. Cook it covered over medium heat until done about 5-8 minutes. It should be slightly firm when done. Immediately run cold water over to stop it from cooking any more. Make sure it is completely cool and drain.
Place the drained cauliflower and remaining (except parsley) ingredients into a serving bowl.Stir well to combine. Garnish with parsley serve chilled
