Watergate Salad Recipe

– Posted in: Recipes

Watergate Salad (also known as Pistachio Fluff Salad) is a refreshing dessert salad – made with pistachio pudding, marshmallows, and crushed pineapple.  I always like to serve it in glass or crystal dishware because it is just as beautiful as it is delicious!  With it’s creamy and soft-green texture, it also is a nice addition to a St. Patrick’s Day menu. Don’t be surprised if you get requests for “seconds” from children and adults alike.  Watergate Salad is a real crowd pleaser!
