Bacon, Tomato, and Cauliflower Salad Recipe
Author: Deena Segal
The first time I made this salad, I ate the whole batch that day, and made it again the next day. It's that good. Hmmm. Come to think of it, I have cauliflower, bacon, tomatoes, and scallions on hand...
  • 8 slices bacon
  • ½ large cauliflower, head
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 12 scallions, sliced
  • ½ cup light mayonnaise (or regular, if you prefer)
  • salt and pepper
  • lettuce leaves
  1. Lay your bacon on a microwave bacon rack, or in a glass pie plate - this may take two batches.
  2. Microwave on "high" for one minute per slice, or until crisp.
  3. Remove from microwave, drain, and let it cool while you...
  4. Trim the leaves and the bottom of the stem off the cauliflower, and whack the remainder into chunks.
  5. Run it through the shredding blade of your food processor.
  6. Put the resulting "cauli-rice" in a microwaveable casserole with a lid, add a couple of tablespoons of water, cover, and nuke on "high" for 6 minutes.
  7. While that's happening, dice your tomatoes and slice your scallions, including the crisp part of the green shoot.
  8. When your cauli-rice is done, uncover it right away, drain it, and put it in a big mixing bowl.
  9. Add the tomatoes, scallions, and mayonnaise, and mix it up.
  10. Now crumble in the bacon, and mix it again.
  11. Salt and pepper to taste.
  12. Chill.
  13. Line plates with lettuce leaves.
  14. Now pack the salad into a custard cup and unmold on the lettuce leaves for each serving.
  15. Or just shove it in your face. Whatever. Marvelous!
