I had a recipe like this which I used for years as did my church ladies group, but we added 1 can of cream of chicken soup to the mix, believe me it makes all the difference in the world! I tried this out of curiosity, and it was greasy, bland, underdone, and not really as good as my old recipe. I also topped mine with a combination of Ritz crackers and cheddar cheese (do NOT use low cal mayo or cheese in this - it doesn't work).

What a Dish!

I've had this recipe in my recipe box for months, meaning to try it out. I made it tonight, and it's a winner! My mom made a dish similar to this, which is what prompted me to try it. The cashews were fun. I used half light mayo, and it turned out perfect. Still creamy. I used about 1/3 of a red onion, chopped fine. This, along with the celery added beautiful color. I didn't have problems with it being too greasy, and I even added the chips (about 1/2 cup). It's common sense that it will be a rich dish though. We all loved it!

I made this recipe last night for my family of five after I went to the store to get everything I needed. They all hated it. There's so much mayo it's discusting. I was very disappointed - not to mention, still hungry.
