I call this "Irish Dessert" because my husband, who loves it, is Irish plus it's green! I don't know the original name for it. My mother in law gave me the recipe, but I have messed with it a bit. I am not into the marshmallows, but kids seem to like them. It is refreshing and different from run of the mill pudding :) Chill time not included.

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.
