Curried Broccoli Salad

It's the curry flavoured dressing that gives this old time broccoli salad a new twist. My mom in law brought this salad to share with us along side a turkey dinner. "Pass that salad again please", was heard often throughout that meal together, and now it's become the most requested salad.
Yields 6-8 servings.

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar (regular or apple cider)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  1. Mix all ingredients together well and place in refrigerator until salad ingredients are ready.
Salad Ingredients:
  • 5-6 cups broccoli florets
  • 6 strips bacon, fried and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 cup golden raisins and/or 1 1/2 cup seedless purple grapes
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  1. Wash and cut broccoli into small florets.
  2. Fry bacon, drain and crumble. Cool before adding to salad.
  3. Add remaining ingredients.
  4. Pour dressing over salad, cover well and place in refrigerator. It's best to allow to marinade for at least 3-4 hours before serving.
NOTE: Once you have your broccoli cut up you can add or omit any of the other ingredients. The addition of small cut up cauliflower is a nice addition to this salad as well.  Sometimes I make it simply with the broccoli, onion and raisins and it's still so tasty. Last in the refrigerator for 5-6 days.
