Tequilaberry Salad

And so you ask, "what the heck is a tequilaberry?" Well, Tequilaberry was a local restaurant here in the Twin Cities in the Anoka area. They closed a while back, but at one time were very highly popular. This was the house salad there. It's super yummy and feeds a crowd - great for holidays or potlucks because it really does feed a crowd.  Try it. You'll like it. It's delicious.

Tequilaberry Salad

For the Salad:
1 Head Lettuce, torn into bit sized pieces
1 Head Cauliflower, chopped into bit sized pieces
1 Cup Bacon Bits (or more if you really like bacon)
1 Cup Parmesan Cheese

For the Dressing:
1 and 1/2 Cups Mayonnaise
1/3 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Milk

Place all salad ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate  not quite as large, bowl - mix the dressing ingredients until smooth. Pour over salad and toss the salad. Serve immediately.

If you plan to bring this to a potluck, here are a few tips:

- After making the dressing, store it in a separate container from the salad.  When ready to serve, just shake it up a bit before dressing the salad.
- Make sure that both the bowl and salad dressing container have tight fitting lids for travel purposes.
- Always tear your lettuce - never use a knife!  When using a knife, it bruises the lettuce and causes it to brown.  Tearing it does not have that effect.
- The salad and the dressing can be prepared up to 1 day in advance.  Just make sure to store them separately and only combine to serve.
