I have made the salad for years. I add 3 bean salad, marinated artichokes, mushrooms, tiny bits of whatever cheese I have, tiny shrimp and anything else I that is great in a salad. To make it an entre salad I add diced chicken, ham or beef. It is wonderful !
Yum! I couldn't wait 24 hours, made in the morning, eaten in the evening. I used radishes instead of water chestnuts(I'm sure the water chestnuts would be even better) and used veggie bacon. Great salad. Thanks!
