Califlower Salad

I really am in the mood for something fresh, crisp, and sweet. I really like cauliflower and it is at a good price right now. This salad is an old recipe that a co-worker shared when I was about 24 years old and we have been making it every since then. The whole clan makes it!!

Here is what you need:

1 head iceberg lettuce or equivalent amount of romaine lettuce
1 head cauliflower
1 pound of bacon diced, fried, and drained
1/2 red onion
1 C. Hellman's Mayonnaise
1/4 C. sugar
1/3 C. Parmesan cheese

Using a very large bowl tear the washed and dried lettuce into the bottom of the bowl. Remove the cauliflower from the heart and trim off any stems and impurities. Slice the florets onto the lettuce.
Dice the red onion and scatter it atop the cauliflower layer. Spread the bacon over the onion. Frost the bacon layer with the mayonnaise and top it with the cheese and sugar. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
At serving time stir well and combine well. 

You may adjust the mayonnaise and sugar and cheese amounts a bit according to how large the heads of produce are. This serves 10-12 and refrigerates well for a day or two.
