fresh broccoli florets
I absolutely love this recipe and have made it several times. Here are the adjustments I make. I reduce the onion, dried fruit, sunflower seeds and bacon by half. It's way too much for the amount of broccoli and goes to waste. I substitute dried cranberries and raisins (1/2 of each) when I don't have cherries on hand and it's just as good. I have made this salad up to 6 hours before a party and it has "marinated" long enough. It's the first salad to go at a party and I have had several people ask for the recipe. It also is great when having company as it can be made ahead so you can spend more time with your guests.
The taste was good, I always like the curry/mayo type dressings, but the broccoli and sunflower seeds weren't crisp. I might make it again, but not let it sit overnight.
This is always a hit. I make it for every party I have or go to. I usually substitute 2 cups of cooked pasta (any kind even tortellini) for the broccoli. I sometimes put the bacon on the side so my vegetarian friends can enjoy it.
This is a nice twist on the usual Broccoli salad. It was great for a luncheon I had for some friends. I received lots of compliments.
took this to a luncheon and it got great reveiws..I used dried cranberries instead of cherries..I think you could experiment with different fruit..raisins..pineapple etc I also used more curry than suggested..great summer salad!
Loved it!! Even my anti-mayo BF loved it! Like others, subbed craisins; left out the bacon too. I'd like to try cashews - either in addition to sunflower seeds or as a replacement. I want more crunch. I couldn't taste the curry so I might also kick that up a bit. Can't wait to make it again!!
Beautiful recipe. I used broccoli AND cauliflower florets.
A great addition to the "old standby's" at our Memorial Day barbecue. Everyone loved it!
