Watergate Salad – A Dessert

I really need to start adding pictures to these recipes… this one is hard to describe.  I guess for now, I’ll add a  picture from somewhere around the web (credited appropriately), and replace it with my own later.

We always serve this at holiday dinners to add something sweet to the table.  I suppose it’s like serving a jello mold, but a little easier to package up, and you don’t have to worry about it looking as nice.

Watergate Salad

1 pkg pistachio instant pudding
1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple
4 oz thawed Cool Whip
1 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)

Mix dry pudding mix, pineapple, marshmallows, and pecans in large bowl until well blended.  Add Cool Whip; stir gently until well blended.  Refrigerate 1 hour.

Makes 8 servings, about 1/2 cup each.
