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 like this Watergate Salad is just the thing. Watergate salad is a classic for a reason! It takes just 5 minutes and 5 ingredients to make. Watergate salad is also great because it is always a hit at barbecues and potlucks, and it can be made ahead of time.
I like lots of marshmallows in mine, so I put a whole package in. Also, I 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. Feel free to adjust the recipe to your tastes!
