Broccoli Salad, with a Curry Dressing.

Do you love mild curry dishes? Are you looking for a new recipe to introduce your family to the delicious flavor that curry can bring to food? This Broccoli Salad with a Curry Dressing is just the recipe to try! Not too hot, and yet with all this flavor being presented, definitely not too boring!

Broccoli Salad with a Curry Dressing.
We have been enjoying our ongoing curry experiment!  Curry is one of those flavors that you either love or possibly not like at all. When I look back, I think that little can of curry powder in my mom's kitchen was many years old! Curry just wasn't a common ingredient in my mom's recipes and the dishes she cooked. My guess is, the curry dishes I enjoy would be considered mild for true curry lovers! But this Broccoli Salad with a Curry Dressing really hits the spot!

The curry in the dressing brings all of the different flavors together. It goes well with the sweetness of the dried cranberries, the crunch of the broccoli, and the salty edge in the bacon. All those flavors and textures blend together to make one delicious and enjoyable salad. You will want to make this salad in the morning or the night before, offering time for the flavors to mingle with one another.
