This is a great recipe for watergate salad! I tried it once with regular pistachio pudding and the next time with sugar free. DEFINITELY use REGULAR pudding. The after taste of the sugar free is TERRIBLE! I didn't feel that the coconut added much taste & I will probably eliminate it next time.

I've tried several versions of this recipe, but this one is the best. My husband and daughter are not big fans of maraschino cherries so I substituted a small can of mandarin oranges, (minus the juice) sliced in half. It's so light and tasty - we couldn't help going back for seconds!!

This is an awesome recipe. I had coconut and nuts on the side, so each individual could put what they wanted. It tastes excellent without. Add a few more cherries for Christmas coloring. Everyone loved it!!! I even modified the recipe to feed 25. I love this site.
