Grandma's Watergate Salad Recipe: An Old-fashioned Dessert in 5 Minutes by Donna John
This creamy dessert recipe takes me back to my childhood. My grandma always called it Watergate Salad, though it’s often referred to as pistachio fluff or just pistachio salad. I just call it perfection!
This easy Watergate Salad recipe has just five ingredients and it takes less than five minutes to prepare. It's made with instant pistachio pudding mix, crushed pineapple with the juice, non-dairy whipped topping, chopped pecans and mini marshmallows. The ingredients are dumped into a bowl, stirred together and refrigerated until ready to serve. Yep, it is the easiest dessert to make ever.
Serve a big bowl of this fluffy old-fashioned Watergate Salad at your next family get-together! It is a Easter tradition at my house and my mother-in-law's house.
