Watergate Salad!

I'm always looking for something easy for my readers and today I came across this recipe on the back of a pkg. of mini marshmallows.  Super Bowl Sunday isn't too far away so I made it today for some friends who will be stopping by after we have our usual Friday run for pizza. ****It would be a nice bring along for those who enjoy sweets and why not to a Super Bowl party?

It's sweet and loaded with pineapple (for you pineapple lovers).  I didn't have any pistachio pudding so I substituted vanilla pudding and adding 2 drops of green food coloring to my Cool Whip.  (you could add more color with a few more drops).

I added some shelled pistachios to this as well as some chopped pecans. 

Easy to make!  Enjoy!!
