What a novel idea & what a conversation piece! I'd previously made some Pistachio Brittle from another ZAAR recipe, so had some of that to substitute for the peanut brittle, but I DID include the salted mixed nuts! A great taste combination, & I'll certainly be keeping this recipe! Thanks so much!

Okay, I'll admit I was really wondering how this was gonna taste with peanut brittle in it. However, it is really good. I think the best way to describe it is that it provides a sweet crunch to the salad, like when you have a green salad with those candied walnuts or pecans on it and who doesn't love that! Then you have the chopped salted nuts, so there is a lot of crunch and a good balance between salty and sweet, I really enjoyed it. I cheated on the ingredients a bit. I used canned chicken, celery flakes and onion powder. Really good, thanks cookiedog!
