Pistachio Mallow Salad

Rated as 4.59 out of 5 Stars

"This fluffy salad is a real treat since it's creamy but not overly sweet. It's easy to mix up, and the flavor gets better the longer it stands. It's perfect for St. Patrick's Day, served in a green bowl. -Pattie Ann Forssberg, Logan, Kansas"

I make this every year for Thanksgiving. I only use 8 oz of Cool Whip. I have never added the green food coloring, but I do garnish with mandarin oranges, and use either walnuts or pecans. Ve...

Great recipe! I put 2 boxes of pudding in instead of 1. I will be making this again soon!

This is excellent! The food coloring... Although I didn't have any on hand, I do see why one might want to add it. With 16OZ of whipped cream, the color of the pistachio pudding mix fades out. I...

We always made this with cottage cheese instead of marshmallows. Still tastes sweet and yummy but a much healthier choice.

This is a favorite of my husband. I don't make it too often unless I am bringing it to a potluck since it's more dessert than salad. I have prepared it by using an 8-os size whipped topping and ...

Make this! It's so easy and resulted in rave reviews- both kids and adults just loved it. Make sure you build in enough time to thaw the whipped topping- up to 5 hours in the fridge.

This is always a hit. If you're not a big marshmallow fan, it's good with less or even no marshmallows.

This is so good. I made a few changes. Added pineapple tidbits(drained) instead of crushed. Loved the texture. Also added unsweetened shredded coconut and less marshmellows than what the re...
