Except for leaving the salt out in the dressing made as posted. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS, as this hit the spot on a light dinner for us tonight. Made for 1 2 3 hits
Except for omitting the bacon this was made as ask using Splenda for the sugar. it was a pleasure to munch, very fresh and tasty. Not at all difficult to make and this salad was enjoyed by all.
Excellent hot weather side dish. I did reduce the sugar quite a bit. We loved the interesting crunch from the water chestnuts. Thanks for posting!
