I have made this salad for years and years, except with a few variations (no chestnuts and I use sharp cheddar). What I like about this recipe vs. mine is adding in the eggs, bacon and tomatoes at the last minute. In mine they are "layered" and then sit overnight and end up being a bit soggy/limp. Great idea to add those 3 ingredients last minute. Note: I don't see where to add the cheese. I spread it over the peas with mayo on top.
