An Oldie... Watergate Salad

I don't often add whipped cream 'salads' to my site because my website is a collection of recipes that I've found or made up that I actually use or have an interest in. I am not a fan of jello or fruit salads and I find most to be stomach turning. But! I know others like them and this is one that my Mother loves. Who knows, maybe when I'm 75 I'll like them. As of right now I would eat this if it were the pudding, (fresh) whipped cream and the crushed nuts together but once the marshmallows and... gulp... crushed pineapple are added, I just can't do it.

For those that have loved this salad/dessert for years... this one is for you. Certainly not me! Ha.
