This is one of the first recipes I ever created, so it's only appropriate that it should be the first one I post! It's a great cold treat, and very easy to make! Most other recipes I've seen call for mayo or Miracle Whip instead of the cream cheese. I'm not a big fan of "heart-healthy" recipes, but this could easily be made with low/no-fat sour cream and cream cheese. The water chestnuts are optional, but I think it adds to the texture!
