Watergate Salad Perfect Buffet Party Food

I really love Water Gate Salad ... my step son calls it the green stuff but it is Water Gate Salad and I am told they served it at the Water Gate Hotel.

My mother would make this for holidays and special occasions so when I make it I always think of her.

It is easy and so tasty... here are the ingredients

1 package of Pistachios instant pudding
8 to 9 oz cool whip
1 can of crushed pineapple juice and all
1/2 package of miniature marshmallows... white or colored..

to the cool whip add the pudding and combine good. Add pineapple with the juice and then marshmallows. Let sit in refrigerator for at least one hour before eating.

Pretty in my glass bowl and a sure winner at our Christmas Eve party..

thanks for stopping by.. I will be sharing this on these blog party sites
