pistachio jello salad

pistachio jello salad
This fluffy “salad” is my go-to summer potluck recipe. I have loved this sweet and smooth pudding since I was a little girl. The ingredients cost under $10, and they are SUPER easy to put together. Usually, I serve the jello in a big bowl, but I discovered how fun it looks when you spread it into a baking dish and garnish it with extra mini marshmallows and crunchy pecans. :)

1 (3.4 oz) box pistachio pudding mix
20 ounce can crushed pineapple, undrained
8 ounces Cool Whip (thawed)
2 cups mini marshmallows, divided
1 sliced banana
1/2 cup chopped pecans

In a large bowl, stir together pistachio pudding mix with the can of pineapple. Fold in the Cool Whip until it’s well-blended. Then stir in banana slices and 1 cup of marshmallows.

Spread the mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Top with remaining marshmallows and sprinkle with pecan pieces. Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.

I told you—EASY!  Enjoy!!
