When making this salad I leave out the celery and chestnuts.. (Just my personal preference) The only other change I make to this wonderful recipe , is adding a package of Hidden Valley Ranch...This gives it such a wonderful taste!!


I made this salad, with a few variations, for our 4th of July picnic. Unfortunately, there was so much great food, the salad barely got touched. Those that did try it liked it a lot...The good news for me is since there was so much left, I have been enjoying it for several days now, finally hitting the bottom of the dish 5 days later! And the marvel is, it's stayed fresh all this time!!! When I made it, I omitted the mushrooms and instead added broccoli flourets. I also used a whole head of iceberg because the spinach at the store looked dreadful.The dressing is simple, but compliments this salad well. I used sugar this time, but I think in the future I'll subsitiute with Splenda. I will definitely make this again, and I will cut down on the peas, too. I thought they were a bit overpowering. All in all, a wonderfully tasty salad that lasts for days.


This recipe turned out well at a recent get together, although some people didn't care for the water chestnuts. I think next time I'll substitute the chestnuts for something else. Otherwise, it disappeared quickly! I'll defintely make it again.
