cauliflower, broken into small florets
1 (8 ounce) bottle
grated Parmesan cheese
Okay Y'all! This was super yummy! I made a few slight changes but nothing major. Instead of the entire bottle of dressing, I used about 3/4 of the bottle. I didn't marinate overnight. I only marinated for 3 hours. This was *perfect*. When it came time for the mayo, I used 1/2 a cup rather than the whole cup. So glad I did this. I think the full cup of mayo would have been enough to overpower the dressing. Once I added the last ingredients in, I put it back in the fridge for another hour or so. We all really enjoyed this. I'll be making it again, for certain!
I did not care for this recipe. I will try it again but I am going to try blanching the cauliflower before marinating. I think that will give the dish more flavor. I found it very bland.
This is WONDERFUL!!! I dislike raw cauliflower, but this looked interesting so we decided to try it. Now I look forward to getting cauliflower just to have this salad!!! Very very yummy and something different to add to the table! Try it! You'll be pleasantly surprised!
Wow....this is seriously yummy! This recipe is a keeper! I added chopped red onions, salt/pepper and garlic powder to the mayo. Then before serving, topped with fresh chopped chives and parsley from my garden. Also, I used real bacon bits and used freshly grated parmesan! I made a second batch and used shredded yellow extra sharp cheese, and used white sweet onion instead of the red....sensational!! I am amazed and shocked that cauliflower can taste so good prepared this way! Note: Save drained dressing for another use. Also, very important.....reserve a few TBS. of the dressing to add to mayo! It adds a special zesty kick!! Adding minced garlic from a jar makes this extra super delicious for you garlic lovers!! And you can marinate this for as long as you like! Two-Three days is perfect! The base for this cauliflower would make a perfect pasta salad!
I was looking for a quick way to use up a head of cauliflower so I used this recipe. It was ok. I didn't want to give it a bad rating, since I am the first to review. Suggestion: I'd go easy with the dressing and use real bacon. It was pretty good and very easy. I think some may like it more than I did. Thanks for the recipe.
I didn't want over-marinated cauliflower so I cut the amounts of the italian dressing and mayonnaise in half. I used a homemade italian dressing. Three out of four of us thought this was really good--I actually ate the rest as a snack last night. Next time, I might try to make this lighter using part nonfat greek yogurt in place of some of the mayonnaise. NOTE: The longer it sits, the better it tastes--if you have time, try to make this as early as you can before you have to serve it.
Fresh vegetables and I are not best of friends!! However, I couldn't get enough cauliflower when I fixed this dish. It is outstanding. (and easy to make.)
I took this dish to a family reunion and there wasn't a drop left. Everyone requested the recipe. It was delicious. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
