I used chameleon in the name because this salad is so changeable. I often add ham to make this a main dish. Take out the peas and olives and add tomatoes for a wonderful BLT taste. Substitute Italian Salad dressing for the Miracle Whip. The possibilities are endless. Cook time is chill time.

This was great. I changed it up a bit to suit our tastes...a little less celery, a little more peas, no olives, and some tomato. When using mayo, I usually start with half the amount and work up from there to save on fat & calories. This seemed fine with only half a cup, so I didn't feel too guilty! Thanks!

This was wonderful! The only thing I did different was I used fat free Italian Dressing (don't care for mayo)
