Pineapple Pistachio Delight/ Watergate Salad

Don’t go by the name, it’s not a salad, it’s a dessert and one of my favorite desserts. Not only because it’s super easy to prepare ahead of time, it tastes divine!! I have gotten comments that this is the best dessert they have ever had! Anyways, I already had this Watergate Salad posted on my blog, but reposting for my event and also with better pictures. It didn’t get the love it deserved then, so giving it all now. :o)


Crushed pineapple in juice – 1 Can (20 oz)
JELL-O pistachio instant pudding mix – 1 pkg (3.4 ounce)
Miniature Marshmallows – 2 cups
Chopped pistachio and walnuts – 1 cup
Heavy whipping cream – 1 quart or 32 oz.
Sugar – ½ cup(if Required – I usually skip it)

Method of Preparation:
 ~ Put whipping blades and whipping bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes.
~ Take it out and then pour the heavy whipping cream in it. Whip the cream for about 5 minutes or until the small spikes starts on the whipped cream.
~ Now add sugar, instant pudding mix and whip for another minute to mix it thoroughly.
~ Take out the whipping blades. Add drained crushed pineapple and nuts.
~ Now add the marshmallows and give it a stir. Chill for at least an hour before serving.
