Cauliflower Salad with Peas

(mydeliciousmeals.com)
This simple Cauliflower Salad made with peas, eggs and cauliflower tastes just like potato salad but is low-carb. This is one of my favorite salads with cauliflower. I also like to add crumbled bacon for additional flavor.

2. To get perfect hard-boiled eggs, place them in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Make sure the tops of the eggs are covered by at least an inch of water. Bring the water to a full boil, cover and remove from the heat. Let stand for 15 minutes. Then place the eggs in a bowl of cold water.
3. Meanwhile, cook bacon. Place it on the bottom of a cold skillet, cook on medium-high until crispy. Drain on paper towels and crumble.
