i made this the other evening for a dinner party. A few of us Coastie couples get together every few months to share a meal. It's a lot of fun and is always a great time to try out a new recipe. this one was a winner. the crunch of the broccoli & bacon coupled with the smooth cream curry dressing was simply delish.
Curried Broccoli-Almond-Bacon Salad
1-1/2 lbs broccoli crowns (or two medium-sized bunches)
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1/2 cup dark raisins
1/2 cup roasted slivered almonds (I just broil them for a minute or two)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
3 Tbs granulated sugar
3 Tbs cider vinegar
1 Tbs curry powder
1/2 tsp salt
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
Cut broccoli crowns into little trees. Place broccoli in large bowl along with onions, raisins and almonds. In separate bowl, combine mayo, sour cream, vinegar, curry powder and salt. Stir well. Pour dressing over the broccoli salad and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2-hours. Sprinkle bacon bits over salad just before serving.
