I have been making this salad for years, I get asked to bring it to all the potlucks I attend. Everyone thinks this is a wonderful salad, my husband always asks me to make extra to leave at home that he can have all to himself. The only thing I do different is after layering the lettuce,cauliflower, onion and bacon (in that order) I mix the mayo, sugar and cheese together and then spread over the top as the last layer.

Great! Very reminicent of the traditional broccoli salad taste. I halved the recipe since it was just for my family and reduced the mayo and sugar a bit to be a little more healthy and added chick peas for some protein. YUMMO! Thanks for posting. I do not like cauliflower usually, but this was sure tasty.
