made "faux-tato" salad, and even my husband said

a big thumbs up.  dh can no longer have potatoes, as they give him kidney stones. (very unplesant) so i had some oven roasted cauli, and decided to make faux-tato salad with it.  

mixed mayo with sour cream, (lightens it up IMO), sliced hard boiled eggs, chopped bread and butter pickles, (family's fav) little dijon, galic powder, s/p and let it sit overnight.  

what a hit!!! will be making it again. 

great for you low carbers

It’s the high protein causing kidney stones.

Eggs, mayo, sour cream....even salt will cause kidney stones.

Not the potato.

Might want to read up on this for his best interest.

@sidsmom  actually have done alot of reading on this, and believe it or not, the recommendation by a urologist  is for a diet low in oxalates  Horrid diet in many ways. plant based diet is a  no no. also no whole grains, or leafy greens, nuts, long list. 

the biggest no was the potatoe.

People with certain conditions must limit their oxalate intake. Oxalate is a substance found in many plants. In the body, it can combine with calcium and form crystals that can contribute to kidney stones and gout. It also promotes inflammation, which aggravates inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. Both potatoes and sweet potatoes contain elevated oxalate levels. Check with your doctor to determine how much oxalate you are allowed to consume daily.  (Source Livestrong)

 

Spinach is very high as well.

@kittyloo   Your new take on potato salad sounds really good. May try this myself.

 

It must really difficult to prepare meals for both you & DH. Much of the good things for all of us to eat he struggles with or simply can't at all. I wish you both well.

Every time my husband eats any kind of nut, he gets a kidney stone.

@BLH  yes, nuts are on the no-no high oxalate list as well. fortunately, dh, has been able to eat some nuts, even tho i always give him the frownie face.  have you read the high oxalate list?? you'd be shocked. everything that you thought would be healthy eating, is a big fat NO.
