Old-Fashioned Watergate Salad Recipe
Watergate Salad is a creamy and fluffy concoction that has been a staple on holiday tables for generations. Not only is the recipe uniquely delicious, but the mystery behind it is fascinating too!
- 8 oz Cool Whip (one small container)
- 1 package pistachio pudding mix 3.4oz box
- 20 oz crushed pineapple drained
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1 cup miniature marshmallows
- 1/2 cup Shredded coconut optional
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Make sure that pineapple is drained first.
Stir to fold ingredients together so that pudding dissolves completely and the nuts and marshmallows are evenly distributed.
I recommend covering and placing in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes to an hour -- I think it gives the flavors a little extra time to meld together. However, you can serve immediately if you like.
