Absolutely Delicious Salad!
Watergate Salad–we had yesterday. But, sprinkle 1 pkg. instant pistachio pudding mix dry in 1 carton (9 oz.) Cool Whip or Dream Whip and add:
1 large can (2 cups) pineapple, crushed, undrained and
1 cup mini marshmallows.
1/4 cup maraschino cherries cut in 1/2 and
1/2 to 1 cup chopped dates, I used a cup, and
1/2 cup chopped pecans. Mix well.
Refrigerate and serve in lettuce cups.
A soft salad but good!!!
