Pistachio Salad...ya know, that light green fluffy yummy stuff!!
(sorry this photo doesn't do this salad justice!!!!)
This is always a favorite in my family, ever since this recipe was passed around so many years ago. Its become a tradition at our Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter dinner table. Some call it Watergate Salad others call is Pistachio Salad...but either way its known to be yummy!! This is how my family makes this dish.
1 pkt sugar free (Jello brand) pistachio pudding, dry
1 can crushed pineapple, drained and juice reserved
1/2 to 1 cup cottage cheese
1 container ff cool whip
Mix dry pkt of pistachio pudding with the crushed pineapple and cottage cheese. Add pineapple juice a little at a time til its moist but not runny. Fold in cool whip and mix thoroughly. Add more juice if its seems too dry and chill in the refrigerator til ready to be served.
Note: Many make this without the cottage cheese and use miniature marshmallows instead. I personally prefer it this way and its more SB friendly...but both are very good!
