This pistachio salad is one of my summer picnic favorites. And while it’s usually a popular item at most supermarket deli’s there is no reason not to make it yourself at home. The ingredients and the making of this salad are so simple that you’ll wonder (like me) why you didn’t make it sooner, or more often.
Here is what you will need.
(1) 8 oz. tub of light whipped topping
(1) 20 oz. can of crushed pineapple (drained)
(1) 3 oz. package of instant pistachio pudding
2 c. mini marshmallows
2-3 drops of green food coloring (optional)
In a large mixing bowl mix the pudding and drained pineapple together. Add the whipped topping and mix until everything is combined. Add the food coloring if desired. Fold in the mini marshmallows. Refrigerate a couple hours before serving.
I didn’t use the food coloring in this salad. If you decide to use it in your salad it will be much more greener.
What’s one of your favorite picnic salads?
