Recipe By:Paula
"This salad is a real conversation piece. Whoever heard of popcorn in a salad? If you take it to a dinner, mix the salad and carry the popcorn separately to be added at the last minute."

Ingredients

  • 10 slices bacon
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 (8 ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
  • 6 cups popped popcorn

Directions

  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, celery, 1 cup of the cheese, water chestnuts, 1/2 cup bacon, carrots and chives. Mix well. Add popcorn and stir to coat. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bacon and serve immediately.
