Pistachio Mallow Salad
Total TimePrep: 5 min. + chilling
This stuff is wonderful, however I do not use cool whip (I just make my own homemade whipped cream). Also I have to substitute something for the pineapple because my husband detests pineapple. I usually use chopped up canned freestone peaches. I use whatever nuts are cheaper at the health food store, usually walnuts and I've even used pecans which were wonderful in this dish. In my neck of the woods we called this Watergate Salad. Some of the ladies added chopped marischino cherries but I didn't because we don't like them! Does anyone have any other suggestions for a fruit I could possibly substitute for the pineapple?
I've been making this salad for years! It's always been called "Fluff". I like to use colored marshmallows for extra color. So quick and easy. Always on the table for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Made this dessert last year and it was a hit, making again for St. Paddy's day...yum
Always knew this as Watergate salad as well, but mu recipe also has coconut in it. YUMMO!!
This is a favorite in my family. My Nana used to tell us that it was called “Watergate Salad” because it was invented at the Watergate Hotel.
Any idea why it was called Watergate Salad? Haven't had this in years and looking forward to introducing my family to it.
I have made this for years. I do not add the food coloring nor the additional nuts. I also use a smaller can of pineapple. It is one of the side dishes I serve at all holiday meals.
The original name for this salad is WATERGATE SALAD.
Ah, good old Watergate salad. Been making this for decades. Old recipe but good.
Yes this is what was "Watergate salad", but it is very good. I make it with everything sugar-free for less calories. My family never was the wiser till they grew-up and used their own ingredients. Still make it today for any time of the year.
