Cauliflower Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Sudie

From my friend Judy, who got this from another friend. She raves about it. The bacon scares me off, but maybe I'll try it one day......It would be a good thing to take to a potluck.

This recipe is fabulous....I've been making it for years so was thrilled to see it on this site that I had to give it a 5 star rating. It is so very simple that you might not think this could be so delicious. Just be sure the cauliflower is in bite sizes to make it easy to eat. I use a 9x13 pan rather than a bowl. The only thing different is I mix the parmesan cheese with the mayo before spreading it on the cauliflower. The bacon makes it wonderful and a real guy pleaser. And, it stores beautifully in the refrigerator overnight and that's why it's important to spread the mayo on the cauliflower and not on the lettuce. There are never any leftovers from this salad. Thanks, Sudie.
