Green Stuff… Surprise!


Another big tradition is what we call the “Green Stuff,” as a kid that’s all we ever called it…

When I was old enough to turn a spoon I learned that it was actually called Watergate Salad and was required to make it by some one that looked like this:

--aunts are strange...

and this is my family version…

So, to get started, we need a few ingredients…

One package of instant Pistachio Pudding…

 

 

 

One 20oz can of crushed Pineapple

 

 

 

One cup of Marshmallows

 

 

 

One cup of shredded Coconut

 

 

 

4oz of whipped cream.

 

 

 

mix everything up in this:

until it looks like this:

…and serve to the family immediately…

…and don’t forget the coconut…

…it won’t end well… trust me…

As an aside I can say that all of these ingredients, with the possible exception of the pistachio pudding mix, can be made from scratch… my sister makes incredible home-made marshmallows and whipped cream and coconuts are easy to get year round… the pineapple might be hard to get in the winter months, but we eat this several times a year…
