What a great easy recipe! I left out the green onions, personal preference, but otherwise followed the recipe. The water chestnuts really are the special ingredient. The little that I had leftover was even better the next day, as flavors melded.
Wowsers, this was a great salad! I did leave out the water chestnuts(my cupboard was empty of them), but the salad was great anyway! I halved the recipe, but won't next time, gone in minutes! Thanks Geema!
