Pistachio Pineapple Delight

A refreshing cool side dish that is similar to ambrosia salad and has many different variations with additional ingredients. It is also known as, “Watergate Salad.”

If you’re ever invited to a dinner, potluck, picnic, basically anywhere where you have to contribute a plate or dish, this is the perfect dish to take. It’s sweet but not overly sweet and it has such a rich taste when chilled. You only need 5 ingredients and it’s so easy to make!


  • 1 can  (20 oz.) Crushed Pineapple in juice, {undrained}
  • 1 pkg.  (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Pistachio Flavor Instant Pudding
  • 1 cup  JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup  Chopped PLANTERS Pecans
  • 1-1/2 cups COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

Three simple steps:

First combine the first 4 ingredients in large bowl.

Next stir in COOL WHIP.

Lastly refrigerate for 1 hour.

(The mixture will make a pretty mint color.)
