Whats the stuff called that is made with pistachio pudding, whipped cream , coconut and I think pineapple and maybe marshmallows?
Its green and awesome!
I think it starts with a "W" but I'm not sure?
I'm looking for the recipe but it makes it hard when you don't know the name of it.
My sis wants it for Thanksgiving.

Hi! I have a recipe like that and it's called Waldorf Salad. (Delish!!!)

Actually, it is absolutely NOT a true Waldorf salad, which was actually created at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in 1896 not by a chef but by the maître d'hôtel, (dining room manager) Oscar Tschirky, the Waldorf salad was an instant success. The original version of this salad contained only apples, celery and mayonnaise. Chopped walnuts later became an integral part of the dish. Waldorf salad is usually served on top of a bed of lettuce.

Green Stuff is the official name of that green stuff.

I call it Green FLUFF. Take a box of pistachio pudding and mix with a can of crushed pineapple. Then fold in a tub of coolwhip. Thats all I do, my family likes it that way. You can add the mini marshmellows. It generally doesnt last long as its super yummy!

When I googled it many sites have the same or similar recipe they just called it Pistachio Pudding Salad or Pistachio Pudding Pineapple Salad or a variation of these name.

I have never heard of it - but it sounds a bit like an ambrosia salad.

Gotta laugh -- we call it "Cool Whip Salad"! Have it on birthdays, holidays, and any time we want something sweet and green! It's fab! icon_biggrin.gif

In the 70s, we called it Watergate Salad.

Watergate salad!!! Thats it!
Thank you so much!
I was thinking Waldorf but I knew that was'nt it. At least I had the "W" right!
We have Ambrosia every year as well but we always called it Marshmallow Salad, I only recently learned its real name.
Thank you again, now I can finish my shopping list.

Oh, thank you chutzpah! And my sincere apologies to everyone! I looked and looked and finally found the recipe booklet, and it indeed says "Watergate Salad"... Very sorry for my mistake! icon_redface.gif
