    Delicious and easy! I followed the recipe the first time and didn't care for the way the mushrooms aged in the leftover salad, so the second tme I used water chestnuts instead of mushrooms and it was great! If you don't plan to have leftovers, I'd use the mushrooms; but if you do think you'll have leftovers, use water chestnuts or just leave the mushrooms out.
