My gal and I tried this last night. It was very easy to make. We did change one ingredient. She is not a fan of mayonnaise so she subbed creamy Italian Dressing for the mayo. It was delicious and we will be making it again. She says the recipe would be good with shrimp or chicken as well. She also wants to add halved cherry or grape tomatoes to it next time.
I love this recipe so much, I make it at least once a week. Good for the summer months, when it is too hot. I did change it a tiny bit, I left out the water chestnuts, added 1/2 T. of Old Bay and used canned peas, dried Chives and dried Dill Weed instead of fresh.
