We are looking for a side salad that also acts as dessert. Try our homemade Watergate Salad Recipe. It's everything you'd ever want in a salad. The pineapples add tanginess and sweetness, the cream cheese and heavy whipping cream make it extra luscious, and the chopped pecans add a lovely crunchiness. Meanwhile, the marshmallows add a playful touch.
You'll start making your own Cool Whip to make the salad. First, using a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until it's fluffy. Then slowly add heavy whipping cream, and continue mixing with the hand mixer. Next, add powdered sugar and vanilla extract, mixing with the hand mixer until soft peaks appear.
Finally, add instant pistachio pudding mix, crushed pineapple, mini marshmallows, and pecans, stirring with a spatula. Then place in the fridge to chill.
