Serves:

8-10

Prep:

14 Hr 10 Min

Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

2 - 3.5 oz
jello instant pistachio puddings
2 - 13 oz
cans of crushed pineapple in its own juice
1 - 3-5 oz
packaged shelled pistachios
1 small bag(s)
miniature marshmallows
1 jar(s)
well-drained maraschino cherries
1 large
tub of whipped topping (cool whip)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Drain the cherries first. They will need to be relatively dry when stirred into the mixture. Save a few whole cherries for garnish later. Cut the other cherries into fourths.
2
In a large bowl, combine the pudding mixes and the undrained crushed pineapple. Stir together until the pudding mix is dissolved.
3
Gently fold in the whipped topping and miniature marshmallows.
4
Next, stir in the pistachios.
5
At the very last, fold in the cut cherries. Stop stirring the instant they are combined to keep from changing the green color of the dessert.
6
Garnish the top with the cherries.
7
Refrigerate about 2 hours. (However, in a pinch, it can be eaten in about 15 minutes.)
8
Variation: Put the entire mix into a graham cracker crust.
