Watergate Salad

Watergate Salad

1 (3.4 oz) pkg instant pistachio pudding mix
1 *8 oz) can crushed pineapple with juice
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 (8 oz) container of low-fat, frozen whipped topping.

In medium bowl, mix together dry pudding mix, pineapple with juice; add marshmallows and walnuts; fold in whipped topping and chill. Garnish with marachino cherries, if desired.

This is a sweet, fluffy salad that was popular in the 1970s. Many think it is named after the Nixon spying debacle, Watergate, but really is named after the hotel where the spying occurred, the Watergate Hotel. No matter, you will love this tasty salad, which goes well with baked ham, pork ribs or lamb dishes. I lightened up the salad a bit using fat-free whipped topping.
This delicious salad about 2 minutes to prepare and will wow your family or dinner guests ... trust me on this ... "I am not a crook!" :)
