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.

Fantastic. I added minced garlic used hot curry powder and omitted the fruit because I didn't have any. Will make again...soon.

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.

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.

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!!

I love broccoli so I really enjoyed this salad. I tweaked it base on what I had available. I used lowfat yogurt instead of mayo I didn't have any raisins so I peeled and chop an apple shredded a carrot and used dry roasted peanuts. Spiced it up with a little more curry cayenne pepper and let it sit for a couple of hours. Great salad pretty too!
