There’s plenty of flavor and crunch in this refreshing salad. I like to use both red and green apples, and sometimes I substitute celery for the water chestnuts. —Vickie Lowrey, Fallon, Nevada

"I have not made this yet, but I think I would use pasta instead of rice and add celery for the water chestnuts or maybe both."

"Was not to impressed with this recipe. Macadamia nuts are very expensive so I used peanuts. It just seemed like this recipe was missing something."
