This is a childhood favorite for me, but I do it a bit differently. Today, I actually made it with ham, because I had a lot leftover after Christmas. It was just as good.
Here are my regular variations:
*I always use sliced almonds instead of pecans.
*I add 2-3 cans of sliced water chestnuts (drained).
*I add a few dashes of hot sauce.
*I omit the potato chips.
*I use Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise, or a combination of both, or whatever I have on hand that will fit the bill. (Today, I didn't have enough, so I added a little creamy poppyseed dressing.)
With the extra crunch the water chestnuts give, the potato chips aren't missing--especially not the extra fat. It almost seems more like a casserole than a salad--or at least to my kids. They love it.
