And Now It's Time For Dessert

Now don’t let the name make you think it’s not a dessert.  I’ve been asked many times to bring this dish with me to potlucks and it’s always a hit.  You can find it online in many variations but my Mom made it this way, and this is how I always take mine. 

Are you ready for dessert?  It’s time for pistachio salad.  Cool and refreshing!!!

1  package of pistachio instant pudding mix
1  8 oz container of cool whip (defrosted)
1  22 oz can of chunk pineapple (or you can use crushed if you prefer)
2 cups of mini marshmallows
chopped walnuts (enough to your liking - about a cups worth – my Mom never measured)

Add the dry pudding mix, cool whip and pineapple, including the juice, into a bowl and mix well.  Then add the marshmallows and chopped walnuts.  Refrigerate until ready to serve. 

How’s that for simple! 

Now that you have an entire meal planned out time to have a potluck, or how about a “traveling potluck”?  Now that would really be fun; 5 homes, 5 courses and loads of fun. 

Try one, try them all.  But when you do, please come back here and share how you did and how well it went over in your house. We’d love to hear from you.
Have a great weekend and happy eating!

(Just not sure I'll make them all at once!)
