FOOD FRIDAY

It's that time again...time for Food Friday !!  The recipe I've chosen to share today is so easy to throw together, even a kid can do it.  I have to confess until last weekend, I don't think I'd ever made it before.  I've eaten it at potlucks, etc and always loved it.  My grand daughter made it for her recent birthday party but I left before they dug into it.  So I got the recipe from my daughter & whipped some up for the potluck BBQ that we went to last Sunday afternoon.

******************************************************

Watergate Salad

1 cup white miniature marshmallows

1 package (4 serving) Jello-O Pistachio Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie filling

1  20 ounce can crushed pineapple & it's juice

½ cup chopped pecans (I used walnuts)

1½ cups (about ½ of 8 ounce tub) thawed Cool Whip Whipped topping

Mix marshmallows, dry pudding mix, pineapple and nuts in large bowl until well blended.

Add whipped topping, stir until well blended. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

NOTE: this only makes 8 servings of ½ cup each.  So if you make this for a big bunch of people, you'll need to at least double the recipe.  And I made it the evening before.

I do remember this salad and loving it.  I have all the ingredients except for the cool whip.  You can't get that over here.  I wonder would plain whipped cream work.  I bet it would.  Shall give this a try soon!
