I just served this for a goody day at work. Everyone loved it! I left out the water chestnuts just because I didn't have any, and I used Splenda instead of sugar. AND it was filling, so I didn't eat TOO much of the other junk. jtengland

Great salad!! If anyone is worried about the fat and calories in the bacon try Hornell fully cooked bacon. They sell it at Costco. Very good choice. Only 80 calories per 2 strips and not loaded with sodium. Great recipe!!

just made this today on my way to a cookout tonight! had to sneak a taste before leaving to make sure it's tasty. i made this with fresh brocc from the farmer's market, substituted chopped walnuts as i'm not a big fan of water chestnuts, and went a little heavy on the cranberries... AMAZING!

It is a good recipe however, to really trim the fat use Turkey Bacon in place of regular bacon, and use Splenda in place of the sugar. You can use fat free mayo, and fat free sour cream, however it really breaks down after several hours. The fat is an emulsifier and seems to hold the dressing together longer. If you want to eat within 6 hours it is great. I also substituted toasted slivered almonds in place of the waterchestnuts. Very nice.
