Pistachio Jello Salad

Happy Friday.  What a crazy week!  It was jus go go go.  Do you ever have those kind of weeks?  It’s supposed to be rainy all weekend and I’m kind of looking forward to just puttering around the house.

I never shared with you the salad we took to some friends for St. Patrick’s day dinner so I thought I would today.  It was the perfect salad for the celebration because it was green!  But really, it’s the perfect salad anytime.  My mom used to make this for my two brothers and I all the time growing up.

The ingredients are simple…


This salad literally takes 5 minutes to make.  Just be sure you make ahead so it can chill in the refrigerator.  Drain the pineapple and toss in a medium size bowl.  Add the instant pudding and stir together.  Add the marshmallows.  Fold in the cool whip.  You can also add a few slivered pistachios as an option.  This salad is so delightful, so light and airy, but sweet at the same time.   I just know you’ll enjoy it.
