Pistachio Pudding Cool Whip Salad

Pistachio Pudding Cool Whip Salad

Here is one of my favorite side dishes to bring to a summer pot-luck Pistachio Pudding Cool Whip Salad!  It is also perfect to have for an Easter Sunday side dish!

I remember as a child and teenager loving it when someone made a “salad” like this and brought it to picnics.  I remember soon after I got out of college, and had to cook for myself, I decided I had to figure out how to make it myself.  I was so super excited when I found out how simple it is to make.

 

You only need 5 Ingredients to make this Pistachio Cool Whip Salad!

  • 1 4 oz pistachio Jell-O instant pudding mix
  • 1 20 oz can crushed pineapple
  • 1 10 oz package of mini-marshmallows
  • 2.25 oz Diamond of California chopped nuts (your favorite – I use pecans or walnuts)
  • 1 8 oz container Cool Whip (I used lite) – thawed
