What's in the Watergate Salad

Not much of you guys. We are talking about 5 ingredients. TOTAL.

  • pistachio jelly instant pudding mix
  • crushed pineapple – in juice! Do not drain!
  • miniature marshmallows
  • your chopped nuts are your favorites: I usually use nuts or pistachios
  • Cool Whip: you can use lite if you prefer

I'm sure this salad looks familiar to you and I hope it brings back good memories too! The best part of this recipe is that it uses ingredients that you probably already have on hand. It is very quick to make and holds up well for days, making it the perfect recipe to make ahead of time. This is definitely one of those recipes that you will want to duplicate for a crowd. Maybe triple 🙂

Some people order watergate salad without pineapple. This is definitely not! I use pineapple and it is juice to dissolve the pudding mixture. You can also make a watergate salad with cottage cheese. It looks a lot like my tropical orange jelly salad. If you like, you can add a cup of cottage cheese to this recipe.
