This is my favorite go-to recipe for potlucks. It's easy to make and the recipe makes a lot. I always take the recipe with me when I take this somewhere because people always ask me for it.

My new favorite salad! I added quite a bit more cauliflower than the recipe called for & still had a lot of liquid left over.

I got rave reviews for this recipe from family and friends. The sauce is amazing. The whole salad is excellent.

Yum! I made this for church potluck and it was the first dish gone. Easy to make and transport. Also easy to double for the next picnic! I've shared the recipe with several people already.
