Happy Monday and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I thought we’d start the week off with something quick, sweet, simple, and GREEN. Perfect for today’s celebrations. This is a delicious fruit salad made with Pistachio pudding mix. I’ve always made this dessert with canned fruit cocktail, however, fresh chopped fruit would be equally as good too. It is very very simple to make and very very good too!
Pistachio Fruit Salad
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
1 8 oz tub of Cool Whip or Whipped Topping
1 16 oz container of Cottage Cheese
1 3.4 oz pkg. of Pistachio Pudding Mix
1 large (30 oz.) can of Fruit Cocktail, drained
1 cup of Mini-Marshmallows
Here’s what you do:
In a large bowl, whisk together pudding mix and cool whip until well incorporated and pudding mix have completely dissolved. Mix in cottage cheese. Then fold in fruit cocktail (drained from it’s syrup or juice) and marshmallows until well blended. And…it’s ready to be served. This is best served cold.
*If you live in a foreign land and cool whip is not available, use 1 cup of heavy whipping cream instead. Using an electric mixer, beat whipping cream and the pudding mix together until it’s well incorporated. Then add cottage cheese, fruit, and marshmallows and mix until all is well combined. It’s ready. Cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until ready to be served.
