Needed more bacon and the canned water chestnuts added a nasty flavor. I will be omitting those. Pure mayonaise is not my idea of a dressing for a salad.
I have been looking for this recipe. I can remember eating this salad as a little kid in the 1970's. I will be replacing the water chestnuts with green onions and the black olives with parmesan ...
Much better with a half cup "or more" of sugar (or Splenda) mixed into the mayonnaise before icing the salad with this dressing.
