Watergate Salad

When it’s 105 F out, turning the oven on just doesn’t sound so great but skipping dessert sounds even worse. So, a quick, cool, no-bake dessert is just the thing. I like lots of marshmallows in mine, so I put a whole package in. I also use chopped pistachios because they work well with the pistachio pudding. I go with salted pistachios because I like the little bit of salt, but unsalted pistachios would be good, too.

    Oh goodness This brings back childhood memories from dinner on the grounds at church. This was one of my favorite deserts that would be there.
