I have only assembled this. I want it to sit overnite so the flavors can marry. I also altered the number of servings so I didn't make enough for 128 people. By using one package of corn and peas - 6 green onions, 1/4 of milk, 1/2 C of mayonnaise 2oz of pimento and 8 oz of water chestnuts and the juice of one lemon. I also left out the nuts since it is going to a potluck dinner. If I were to make it just for my family I would probably add the nuts. I am thinking of adding bacon bits instead.It was simple to assemble and could be done last minute. So far So good :)
