watergate salad.

When I made this for my family at Easter, Tina threatened to quit the blog if I posted it. Naturally, I waited until she forgot about it, made it again, took photos and am now posting it. I hope you’ve enjoyed her posting here on The Dough Will Rise Again; I just could not keep this classic from you any longer.

Yes, this is full of all sorts of food-that’s-not-really-food. If you’re doing any sort of clean eating/paleo diet? This is not for you. But if you want a side – or a dessert – that reminds you of holidays with your grandparents, then Watergate Salad is for you.

Watergate Salad
a classic.

8 oz. Cool Whip, thawed (I use reduced fat)
20 oz. crushed pineapple, with juice
small box Jello Instant Pistachio pudding mix
1/2 c. chopped pecans (I left out this go-round. I’m aware this is an abomination.)
Half a bag of miniature marshmallows

Mix first 3 ingredients until smooth. Stir in pecans and marshmallows.

Chill for at least an hour before serving.

You’re welcome.

  1. It’s truly unfortunate that you posted this today, as I had an EXCELLENT recipe to post tomorrow, and now I am forced to quit the blog. Very disappointing, indeed.

    Also, this is horrifying. That is all.

  2. I’m in the camp that it’s actually good. And I think if Tina wants Crist to eat something savory with nuts in it, she should also try this.

  3. And here ends my streak of pinning every recipe you chicks post. Abomination. And I’m from South Carolina.

you don't have to burn atlanta to make a statement...
