"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."

1 1/4 cups
shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
1 (8 ounce) can
sliced water chestnuts, drained
minced fresh chives
This is great. I had to leave off the water chestnuts since I am allergic and have had to use Bac'os once but it was still a big hit.
I also alter the types of cheeses so that it has a more exotic flavor.
It is always the first things to go and the conversation piece.
JUST MAKE SURE YOU REMOVE ALL THE KERNALS!!!!
I read all the other 5^ reviews but I guess I just don't get it. It is such an odd comination but I thought I would try it anyway. I wish I would have put all those ingredients on cooked pasta instead. I feel like I wasted alot of bacon etc for nothing.
What a fun salad! Very skeptical at first but was totally surprised! I used hot air popcorn. Since this is rather rich tasting, you wouldn't want any extra salt or butter. I will make definately make again.
Everyone loves this when I make it. I only use 1/2 cup mayo.
I made this salad for my daughter's graduation party, and it was the hit of the banquet table! Everyone wanted the recipe, and I even received calls long after the party asking for the recipe. The popcorn makes it very different, and it is delicious.
Actually better than I thought it would be. I liked it, although ,my picky kids didn't want anything to do with it after tasting it. My husband liked it but wouldn't eat much of it, because of it's fat content. I would make this for a potluck or bbq in place of potato or macaroni salad.
I work in a grocery store where the deli has this salad. I love it, so was glad to find the recipe here so I can make my own. This one is a little different, but great.
This is a great salad. Gotta try it to believe it! My kids and husband love it.
