Red and Green Salad!!

Red and Green Cabbage, Cauliflower, Spring Onions, Peas, Bacon, Mayo, and Cheese Marry Up into a Crunchy Salad.
Every time you turn around any more you hear of the tremendous benefits of eating deeply colored fruits and vegetables.  This salad utilizes red cabbage as one of the star ingredients and it is tasty and crunchy to boot with a great bacon  and cheese backdrop.   It is a spin off of a lettuce and cauliflower salad posted earlier and a salad my Mother made last weekend when we visited her north of Fishers.


1/2 head of red cabbage sliced thinly
1/2 head of green cabbage sliced thinly (I used Savoy because that is what I had on hand.)
1/2 head fresh cauliflower sliced into bite sized pieces
3-4 spring onions sliced
2 C. thawed frozen peas
1 pound of bacon diced and fried crisp, then drained well.
1 1/2 C. Hellman's Mayonnaise
3 T. sugar
3 T. Parmesan cheese

This salad is best if made the night before serving.  Using a deep bowl laver these ingredients in the order they are given.  Layer the Hellman's by spreading it like frosting with a butter knife or an off set spatula will work the best.  Then sprinkle across the mayo, first the sugar then the cheese.  Cover and refrigerate.  The salad also keeps well and just gets better as it wilts a bit.
