This has been my mother's "go-to" dish for potlucks ever since I can remember. Everyone loves it! We call it "The Green stuff" and leave out the marshmallows & nuts.
My mother has made this since the 70's. Around here, it has always been called "Watergate Salad." It is very good, light and has always been a great picnic or holiday dessert.
I made this for St. Patrick's Day and it went over wonderfully. I'm don't think the origin is really Irish but hey, it's green and it worked. But I remember my mother making this when I was a kid and it had some different name (although I don't remember what it was). I also added some maraschino cherries cut in half.
This is a tried and true recipe. Have made it for over 20 years, also.
This is a great recipe. I have been making this for at least 20 years. This was handed down to me from a girl friend. I have always used regular size marshmallow and the longer it seats, the better it taste.
Really enjoyed this..Thanks for sharing!
