Chestnut salad is much in favor, and great is the variety both in method of preparation and serving. Prepare chestnuts, cook until very tender, cool and mix with French Dressing, or Mayonnaise Dressing.

Equal parts of shredded celery and chestnuts is a popular combination.

Bananas, apples, celery and chestnuts go well together. The fruit is pared, cored and cut in slices and mixed with the chestnut meats. Dress with mayonnaise dressing and garnish with lettuce hearts.
