You can't go to a bbq on the Eastern Shore of Maryland without seeing Watergate Salad. I never knew what it was growing up, but I knew it was delicious and either my Grandma or an Aunt would make it for summer get togethers.
I was recently asked to bring a dessert to a coming up Easter get together with the inlaws and I immediately thought of this Southern 70's dish. And I'm not sure if it's a regional thing, but I haven't found a single Californian who's heard of it! If you want to serve something unique this Easter, please check out this delicious dessert!
Oh, and I should mention that it's INSANELY easy. You seriously can't mess this up.
What you need-
1 package/box of pistachio pudding
3 large handfuls of marshmallows (or eyeball it)
1 20 oz can of crushed pineapple
1 container of Cool Whip
Throw all the above ingredients together. No need to drain the pineapple either. Mix it all up and let it sit in the fridge for an hour before serving.
This dessert is very light tasting and believe it or not, not too sweet! It's light green color (from the pistachio pudding) makes it very nice for Easter. I love this salad!
