People raise their eyebrows when I tell them I am serving popcorn salad! They think I am kidding. One of the surprising things about this salad is that the popcorn doesn't get soggy if you happen to have some left over for the next day. Try this--bet you will like it! It is hardy enough to serve as salad lunch along with crusty bread or crackers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine celery, radishes, onion, water chestnuts, bacon and chives in large bowl and mix well.
  2. Set aside.
  3. When ready to serve, add lettuce; pop popcorn and add immediately to the vegetables along with cheese and mayonnaise.
  4. Toss until mayonnaise is evenly distributed.

this was a delight to make and to serve to "surprised" guest ! i used real bacon pieces instead of fried bacon. also, i used mixed lettuce with swish chard greens (which gave it a nice color scheme. the left over salad was as good a "new" later in the day ! patsy
