  1. Place the cauliflower in a steamer basket set in a saucepan over 1 inch of boiling water. Steam 5 minutes, until tender but still firm. Drain, cool slightly, and place into a large bowl.
  2. Mix the mayonnaise with the Italian salad dressing and Parmesan cheese in a bowl. Add the carrots to the bowl with the cauliflower, and toss with the mayonnaise mixture until evenly coated. Cover, and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight to allow flavors to blend.

This recipe is great! The dish is fantastic! I used the Kraft Shredded Parmesan, Romano and Asiago cheese blend instead of the normal parmesan and it was delicious! I also used light mayo.

I had half a head of cauliflower to use and found this recipe. I altered it because I didn't want to use mayo and had some other ingredients on hand. I used 1/3cu vinegar, less than 1/4 cu olive oil, an unmeasured amount of water and plain yogurt to make a thick creamy dressing with the italian mix. I tossed this with raw cauliflower, because this head tasted great, shredded carots, and some frozen peas. Refreshing way to keep extra veggies from rotting in the fridge!

I am not a big cauliflower fan but this recipe may convert me into a flowerhead. I altered nothing on the recipe except I added a bit more cheese (Romano blend) and sprinkles of Italian seasoning. This salad is ridiculously simple and very tasty.

Really enjoyed this! I used homemade italian dressing mix and was only able to chill it for an hour but it was so good! Thanks for sharing!

I agree that this had a bold flavor. I didn't set it in the fridge for 2 hours before trying it, and I think it would have tasted better if I had. But, it was good.

We liked this salad but it isn't visually appealing. I garnished it with green onions but I think adding another green vegetable or red peppers would be good.
