Is it a side salad or a dessert salad? It's either! Watergate Salad breaks all the rules. It's a crazy green concoction of pistachio pudding, pineapple, cool whip, marshmallows and pecans.

Watergate Salad is a retro dessert that is both fun and tasty. This sweet dessert salad, which is often passed off for a side, is made with pistachio pudding, Cool Whip, canned pineapple, marshmallows, and nuts. It is very similar to Ambrosia Salad.

Set some Watergate Salad out at your next Potluck and watch it disappear. It’s also a great salad to include for your Easter Meal.
