Cauliflower florets tossed with sliced radishes, bacon, sunflower seeds, green onions, and a Garlic Parmesan Salad Dressing that is SO incredibly good!
Hi Hi! Hey Hey! Happy Sunday! Hope your day is filled with all the good things!
I personally just want a Sunday packed with “Friends” reruns, my feet up on the couch, and a whole cheesecake without calories. Today won’t be that day, though.
I’m spending the day in the kitchen, preparing for my dad’s Name Day celebration tonight by making my awesome Chunky Chicken Salad, my other awesome Russian Layered Salad, and THIS awesomesauce, Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Salad!
I have been in charge of making salads and side dishes for all our parties and gatherings since I was 12 years old. Apparently, chopping up veggies is my favorite pastime.
Soooo… I realize that my hang up for all things garlic-parmesan might be getting to you, but can we just enjoy it for one more day? Pleeeease?
When I first made this salad, it was with a purpose. This salad was a great way to bridge the gap in our house between a garlic lover and a cauliflower hater.
It wasn’t me. It was my other half. He doesn’t like cauliflower. HOW? WHY? I mean, just dip it in creamy Ranch and you’ll never know its true colors. Am I right or am I right? Exactly.
Orrrr… you can toss that cauliflower with some of that Garlic Parmesan Salad Dressing that I like to talk about and forget about questioning the “white tree” vegetable ever again!
Cauliflower Florets with Radishes
A true winter’s delight, this cauliflower salad served with earthy radishes is a salad everyone enjoys. It’s also a great accompaniment to any main fare!
Essentially, we’re letting raw radishes and crunchy cauliflower marinate in creamy garlic for a few hours. If that doesn’t sound like the best thing to happen all week, I don’t know what will.
Naturally, there’s bacon in there, too.
