Healthier Watergate Salad


I'm not a big St. Patrick's Day party girl, but I do love going with a theme...and since GREEN is the color of today, I've decided to share a couple of recipes to add to the fun...

This salad/dessert makes a great dish to share with company.

And this version has a tad bit more of 'healthy eating' added. This recipe calls for fat free yogurt which makes this creamier than the traditional recipe without the yogurt.

You just can't beat a dish that whips up in just a couple of minutes now can you???


1 pkg. (4 serving size) pistachio flavor fat-free sugar-free instant pudding & pie filling
8 ozs. can crushed pineapple in own juice, undrained

8 ozs. fat free vanilla (Gr eek)yogurt
2-1/2 cup thawed fat free whipped topping, divided

1-1/2 cups mini marshmallows, divided

Stir pudding mix, pineapple with juice and yogurt in large bowl until well blended. Gently stir in  2 cups of the whipped topping; add 1 cup marshmallows; cover. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until ready to serve. Top with remaining marshmallows before serving. Yield: 8 servings
