Feeling REALLY nostalgic over here thinking about Watergate Salad. Who else grew…

Written by

Feeling REALLY nostalgic over here thinking about Watergate Salad. Who else grew up with this delicious, green fluffy “salad” that’s actually a dessert?! 🙋🏻‍♀️
.
My mom would make it for special occasions/summer picnics and I would always sneak extra scoops straight from the fridge. 🙊 It was my FAVORITE! .
All you watergate salad fans are in luck, because I created a REAL FOOD watergate salad recipe — no marshmallows, no instant pudding and real pistachios! It’s creamy with vanilla Greek yogurt, refreshing from sweet pineapple and a touch crunchy from the granola and pistachios. Y’all will flip over this retro recipe makeover! 💚 Who’s ready to make a batch this summer?

  • Yes! I grew up with Watergate Salad, too! It’s so good. I definitely need to try your healthy version. I made your pumpkin almond butter muffins for a friend who is taking chemo for breast cancer. I always make her your recipes, because I know they are good for her. I also print out the recipe so she can see exactly what’s in it and possibly make it herself when she is feeling better. I always tell people to go to your website and find all the good recipes. 😊

  • Had never heard of this till last year…and I wasn’t a fan. I absolutely can get behind your version, though!

  • My mom has made this every year for Easter/summer gatherings, but she calls it Pistachio salad 🤷‍♀️. Sooooo delish and I always looked forward to it…I love it! I’ll have to continue the tradition with your recipe! 💚
