"I made this as a recipe for 6. I mistakenly used Miracle Whip and it still turned out great maybe even better than mayo. I don't think what I made would have served 6 but it would be adequate for 4. I would omit the water chestnuts next time and use a little less of the peas.It probably doesn't need the egg either."
