cauliflower & bacon salad with creamy parmesan dressing


This salad is an oldie but a goodie. This salad is our attempt to make iceberg interesting. 

The textures in this salad are great – iceberg lettuce tossed with crunchy cauliflower, crispy, salty bacon, and red onion. It really is a fantastic combination, you won’t be able to stop eating it. The parmesan and olive oil dressing is the perfect complement to the lettuce and bacon.
