Taste of Traditions: Watergate Salad

This recipe is a classic from the 1970s; found written in my grandmother’s familiar handwriting. Although she is clearly not the person who created this recipe (General Foods/Kraft has the honor), it certainly takes me back to my childhood and family gatherings where it was always expected and served!

Enjoy this tasty blast from the past.

1 package pistachio pudding

1/2 cup marshmallows

 9 oz Kool Whip

 1/2 cup chopped nuts


 Mix pineapple with dry pudding mix
