Every year we have a tradition to make these two desert salads for the holidays, my grandmom started it and i've definantly picked up on makeing these every year. Hope you guys like them!!


1 (1 lb.) can crushed pineapple
1 (8 oz.) container Cool Whip
1 1/2 c. chopped nuts
1 sm. box instant pistachio pudding
1 1/2 c. mini marshmallows

Mix pistachio pudding and cool whip together (best if cool whip is very soft), drain the pineapple but keep juice, Mix everything together except the pineapple juice. Once all is mixed together add the juice till you get a texture you like.
best if sits in fridge over night so that the marshmellows get soft.

This other one isn't the recipie i have, I'm still waiting on getting that one again from my step mom, but this one seems to be very similar if not the same .
