Watergate Fruit Salad

This yummy fruit salad certainly tastes better than it looks. It isn't a dish that I normally would make because the ingredients are processed and there really isn't much fruit in it, but it tastes so good!! My aunt Cindy made it last year at Christmas and it was delicious. It is also very easy to make and only requires a few ingredients. It tastes better  when it sits in the fridge for a few hours, so you can make it well in advance.


1 can (20 ounces) of crushed pineapple, undrained
1 cup miniture marshmallows
1 1/2 cup cool whip, thawed
1 package (4 1/2 serving size) of Jell-O brand pistachio pudding mix
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Yields (8) 1/2 cup servings

Time: 5 minutes prep and 1 hour (at least) refrigeration time.


Mix all ingredients except cool whip in a large bowl.

Gently fold in cool whip until just blended.

Cover with foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. This allows the marshmallows to soften and the flavors to blend.
