Watergate Salad

I just love this stuff!  Probably because it’s more like dessert than salad.  This is another one of those recipes that I’ve had and made forever and just can’t remember where it originally came from.  I’ve always wondered why it’s called Watergate Salad, was it Richard Nixon’s favorite?  I need to look it up . . .

1 (4 serving size) package pistachio instant pudding and pie filling

1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple in juice, undrained

1 cup miniature marshmallows

1/2 cup chopped pecans (left the nuts out this time)

1 1/2 cups (1/2 of 8 oz tub) thawed Cool Whip whipped topping

Mix pudding mix, pineapple, marshmallows and pecans until well blended.  Gently stir in Cool Whip.  Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until ready to serve.
