Other Main Dishes
Mertzie's Cauliflower & Peas, Please, Salad
Family Tested & Approved
small head of cauliflower, blanched or steamed lightly
box of frozen peas, thawed & drained well
smoked turkey breast (deli sliced), cut in bite sized slices
block cheese cut in cubes (swiss, cooper sharp, or vermont sharp are all awesome in this!)
rice noodles (the crunchy kind in the asian section)
slices bacon, fried crisp (yum!) (i usually use like 6 slices, b/c we heart bacon)
fresh ground black pepper
dijon coarse mustard
poppyseeds (optional, if you like them)
I soak my onion in ice water for about 30 minutes to make it more mild, as I don't like the taste of uncooked onions all that much. :)
Mix up the dressing ingredients. Make sure peas are thawed and cauliflower is cooled off. I chop the cauliflower up in small bite sized pieces.
Add all ingredients except the rice noodles and pour dressing over. I use a good amount of black pepper, no salt.
Refrigerate for a few hours and toss some rice noodles in before serving for crunch. Enjoy!
