I remember when this was all the "rage" back in the 60's, I think it was. Everyone was making it, and it showed up at
every church supper or family gathering. I love the stuff. LOL. It was my first experience with pistachio pudding too. Before that, I'd eaten pistachio ice-cream only a few times, and had never even seen a pistachio nut that I know of.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Watergate Salad

I was just a kid when I first helped my mom make this salad. It was also my first taste of pistachio in anything other than ice-cream. What a delight, and how fast the salad caught on.

Every church supper we ever went to from then on, we'd find a pretty bowl of WaterGate Salad on the table. It brings back many nice memories, and it's good to see that it's still making its way around.

Sometimes we'd put extra Cool-Whip on top, then drained maraschino cherries along with 2-3 fresh mint leaves just for decoration. It would look so pretty.

Thank you Robin.
