Pistachio Coconut Cream Marshmallow Salad

Sharing is caring!

Lovers of the traditional Watergate Salad will want to try my recipe for Pistachio & Coconut Cream Marshmallow Salad. Instead of solely using pistachio pudding I combined a box of pistachio and a box of delicious coconut cream Jell-O. The result is absolutely delicious. Portion them out into little dishes and if you’d like, garnish with a bright red maraschino cherry. Enjoy!
