You are living in a vacuum my friends, if you haven’t yet tried this Pistachio Fluff Salad.

Some people call it Pistachio Dump Salad, Or Pistachio Pudding Salad or Watergate Salad. Or just the Green Goop. Whatever you call it, it’s a huge hit at all our family functions.

It’s seriously 4 ingredients (5 if you count the cherries on top)! I know many people add extra nuts to theirs, but not us. Occasionally I’ll swap out the mini marshmallows and use the fruity, colored marshmallows instead.

Summer is a great time to whip up a batch of this fluff salad. I know I keep calling it a salad. But afterall, mom always said to eat your greens, haha!!

Seriously though, with summer just around the corner, and potlucks, graduations, and bbq’s looming, this Pistachio Fluff Salad is the answer to “what should I bring.”

The hardest part of this salad is giving it time to mingle. Allowing it to thicken up. You can make it the night before, or whip it up at least 4 hours in advance.

If you don’t want to put the cherries on top, you can toss them into the mix. This also makes a beautiful Christmas side dish with the red cherries and green pudding mixture!

So, tell me, have you eaten this before? Do you love it as much as I do?

HOW TO MAKE PISTACHIO SALAD:

  • In a large bowl, combine your two boxes of instant pistachio pudding mix with your can of crushed pineapple. Do not drain the pineapple. Mix with a wooden spoon until pudding mix is blended with pineapple liquids.
  • Add in Cool Whip and mini marshmallows.
  • If you want to add in some chopped walnuts or pecans (like in a Watergate salad), do so now.
  • Cover and refrigerate 4 hours, or overnight. Serve with maraschino cherries as a garnish. Or, if desired, add cherries to fluff right before serving. ENJOY.
