Similar to other broccoli salads, but with the added flavor of curry and the crunch of cashews. Great for potlucks. Easy to prepare in advance! Prep time includes time to chill.

I make this often, I first came across it in "The Curry Book" by Nancie McDermott. I prefer this to the usual cheddar version by a long shot!

Wonderfully flavored broccoli salad. Mixed up all the ingredients except the dressing in the food processor so it went together easily and quickly. Skipped the bacon, used low fat mayo, fat free sour cream and Splenda and it was still rich and crunchy and delicious. This one deserves a try!

We loved the curry flavor of this salad. I omitted the raisins but it was still delicious. Thanks
