This Pistachio Pudding Salad is a Thanksgiving Tradition at my House.
This Thanksgiving side dish is also known as Watergate Salad. I guess I am too young to understand why. Anyone know? I was first introduced to this salad as a five year old by my Aunt Jana. I was amazed at how easy it was to make even a 5 year old could do it! It will only take you 5-10 minute to whip this one up!!!
After I learned about this Pistachio Pudding salad from my aunt it started showing up for Thanksgiving. When I married my husband this Pistachio salad showed up on their Thanksgiving day table too. Now this is a must have for Thanksgiving at my house.
You will only need these 5 ingredients to make this salad.
All you have to do is dump and stir! I have made this without the pecans when I do not have them on hand and it is good that way too! I have made my instructions a little more detailed to avoid dirtying more measuring cups than necessary. You could even use the same 1 cup measuring cup for all three measured ingredients.
I hope you enjoy our Thanksgiving side dish tradition. It also makes a nice side dish for a Christmas with the pretty green color.
