    BeachGirl's Note:

    This is my favorite cauliflower dish. At a training seminar, teachers could "teach" anything to demonstrate their teaching techniques. One teacher taught us how to cook this recipe, and I love it!

      While cauliflower is cooking, mix mayonnaise, mustard, and onion together.

    8. 8
      Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

      I would put a "scant" 1 teaspoon of mustard in the sauce the next time. I used a very generous teaspoon and found the mustard taste too overwhelming.

      I had a small head of cauliflower so used 1/2 cup of mayo and 1/2 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. I had red onion on hand and used that in place of green onion. I made a mistake and mixed the mayo and cheese together so spooned mixture onto the microwaved certainly didn't change the great taste of this dish. I also added a dash of hot sauce (along with the mustard and salt) to the mayo mixture. WOW! We ate every bite and scraped the plate. BeachGirl, I wish I could give you 10 stars for this recipe. Thanx!

      This was, quick, tasty and will be made again. I did add some water to the dish when microwaving the cauliflower and I added some hot sauce to the mayo/cheese mixture as you suggested. Served it sprinkled with chopped fresh parsley.
