Pistachio Salad Is a Simple, Sweet Treat

With just four ingredients, you can whip up pistachio salad in minutes.

I wish I could come up with a better name for this dessert. Pistachio salad just sounds so ... gross. I've also seen similar recipes referred to as Watergate salad, but I don't see where that name is much better. Call it whatever you like, but I think you'll find this dessert delicious and incredibly easy to make.


1 small box of instant pistachio pudding

1 8-ounce can of crushed pineapple (do not drain)

1 cup of miniature marshmallows

2 cups of Cool Whip (can use low fat or fat free)


Mix everything together in a bowl and enjoy. Seriously. It's that easy.

I LOVE this! My Mom has made this every Christmas since I was little and we've always called it "Green Stuff", hahaha, not much better than Pistachio Salad. She would alway decorate the top with cherries and pecan halves. It's also good with crushed up pecans mixed in.
