24 Hour Layered Salad

This salad is my favorite for family get-togethers. It is supposed to be refrigerated for 24 hours before serving, to allow all the flavors to meld, but it's not necessary to wait that long if you get a late start. This makes enough for 10 - 12 people. Here is what goes into it.

In a 9" x 13" pan, layer

1 small head of iceberg lettuce torn into bite-size pieces
1 small cauliflower, also cut into bite-size pieces (use just the florets)
2 cups of Hellmans' mayonnaise ("frost" it over the first 2 layers)
2-3 onions, chopped fine
2/3 - 1/2 cup of shredded or grated parmesan cheese
1 pound of cooked, crumbled bacon

After all is layered in the pan, cover tightly with saran wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours
