pistachioAhhh it is the weekend to be IRISH !!! Green beer, The Chicago River is flowing green today, and the corned beef will soon be in the crock pots all over!!! I am Irish, born on St Paddys day and named Partricia. You would think as a foodie , I ‘d be all over this one! Nope sorry, I just can’t bring myself to dye EVERYTHING green to eat! I will have some corned beef though 😉 So my green contribution to the Holiday is a simple Pistachio Nut Salad. Light fluffy creamy goodness!! Enjoy!!

1 carton (16 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed

1 package (3.4 ounces) instant pistachio pudding mix

6 to 7 drops green food coloring, optional

3 cups miniature marshmallows

1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained

In a large bowl, combine whipped topping, pudding mix and food coloring if desired. Fold in the marshmallows and pineapple. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
