I love pea salads, but I had never made one with peanuts and waterchesnuts so I just had to try it. I did cut the waterchestnuts in half because they just seemed to big compared to all the other ingredients in the salad. I thought this was fantastic the day that I made it. I went to have some for lunch the following day, and it was still good, but had become quite watery and the peanuts had lost their nice crunch. I will definitely make this again because I usually have all of these items on hand.
