Cauliflower, Lettuce & Bacon Salad
A lower fat and calorie version of a cauliflower layered salad that's sure to please.
||Put bacon in a skillet and brown until crisp while preparing the rest of the ingredients. When crisp, let drain and cool on paper towels and crumble.
||In a small bowl combine the mayo and sweetener (like Splenda). Let sit while continuing with the other ingredients.
||Tear lettuce leaves into small pieces and add to a very large bowl for 1st layer. Don't use the very center of the head as that part is very bitter.
||Add chopped cauliflower flowerettes for 2nd layer. Add rings of onions for 3rd layer.
||Using a rubber spatula, spread the mayo and Splenda mixture on top of the layers, as if you were icing a cake. This is layer 4.
||Sprinkle the shredded Parmesan cheese and crumbled bacon over the top of the 'icing' for layer 5.
||Cover and chill for at least 4 hours. Letting it set overnight is even better.
||Toss the salad immediately before serving. Yields 8 healthy portions.
