Today is National Watergate Day ...
And here's the perfect salad for honoring this day that literally changed how I viewed our government officials from that day forward ...
1 (1 pound 4 ounce) can of crushed pineapple,
in 100% pineapple juice, drained - reserve the juice
2 small packages of instant pistachio pudding mix
1 large (16 ounce) tub of Cool Whip, thawed
2 cups of miniature marshmallows
1 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts, optional
Drain the pineapple, reserving the juice. Stir together half of the pineapple juice with the pudding mix until well blended. Gently fold in the Cool Whip, and then carefully stir in the pineapple, marshmallows, and pecans. Add additional juice only if needed. You want this to be moist, but not runny. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour or preferably overnight.
