Watergate Salad

This was one of my favorite “salads” growing up. I tried my best to make it EBF friendly using Tru Whip and organic ingredients, but it’s still more of a dessert than a salad. That said, it’s pretty darn tasty and brings back fond childhood memories for me. :)

Author:
Ingredients
  • 1 - 20 oz. can organic crushed pineapple in juice (undrained)
  • 1 box (4-serving) of jello brand sugar-free instant pistachio pudding
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 container of thawed Tru Whip (natural Cool Whip)
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
Instructions
  1. Combine dry pudding mix, pineapple, marshmallows and walnuts in a large bowl.
  2. Add the Tru Whip and combine until well blended.
  3. Cover and put the fridge for about an hour before serving. I get excited and eat some when I first make it, but the marshmallows get soft and fluffy if you let it sit in the fridge first. Leftovers store well in the fridge -- that is, if there's any left.
