Cauliflower Salad

I have cooked cauliflower so using it raw, in a salad, is new to me.  The clean crisp bite was a pleasure to eat with the other ingredients, it is a sure winner.  It comes from Taste of Home magazine - October-November 2005.  The original recipe included a pound of bacon which I did not use.  While, I would guess that the bacon would make it even more crispy and tasty, it was just fine without it.  I also eliminated the cheese.  It just did not seem to need it.
Cauliflower Salad


1 medium head cauliflower, broken into florets

 1 medium red pepper, chopped

 1 medium onion, chopped

 1/2 cup mayonnaise

 2 teaspoons honey


In a large salad bowl, combine the cauliflower, bell pepper and onion. 

Combine the mayonnaise and sugar. 

Spoon over cauliflower mixture and toss to coat. 

Cover and refrigerate before serving. 

Eat and enjoy.
