Summer Salad Recipe

Surprise Me!

Here is a perfect summer salad recipe that is easy and super delicious! It makes a great  light meal or the perfect side for a barbeque or sandwiches. The best part — it can be made ahead!


1 head lettuce, bite size pieces
1 medium onion, diced fine
1 head cauliflower, chopped fine
1 lb. bacon, crisp and crumbled
1/2 Cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 Cups mayonnaise
1/2 Cup sugar

Place in a large bowl by layers, the following:  Lettuce and cauliflower.  Spread the mayonnaise on top, making sure it covers the  lettuce layer completely and touches the sides of the bowl (this acts as a seal and keeps the lettuce and cauliflower fresh — essential to this salad! )

Next, spread the onion, bacon, Parmesan cheese, and sugar.  Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate several hours or overnight.  Toss and serve immediately.

Serves 8 to 10
